The article takes as a starting-point the controversy about the 'islamic veil' recently arisen in Italy. After a discussion of the different meanings of the veil for the islamic women and after a quick comparison between the situation in Italy and France, the author rejects both the abstract universalism and the identity particularisms and she argues for a pattern of policentric universalism. This universalism acknowledges a plurality of different ways of access to some common universal values and the right of every woman and man to choose his/her own allegiance and to build his/her own personal identity.
