I saw this stick-bug yesterday (I believe it is called Phasmatodea). I thought you may be interested in this. I was.
Thanks so much for sending your photo. We don’t get many submissions from Italy. We commonly call Phasmids Walkingsticks in North America. We did a bit of research and learned on the University of Groningen website that: “In Europe, some ten species can be found in the Mediterranean region” and that some of them have been reclassified into a new genus.
