Bug in Italy

I have seen this bug twice in my apartment in Italy, once in my closet and again today on my window sill. Is it a roach? Also, is this something I could be allergic too or bites? I have been incredibly itchy at night since I have moved into this apartment a few months ago!

Dear Creeped out,
This is a Silverfish and it is a common household pest found in many parts of the world.  Silverfish will eat stored foods, but they also feed on a variety of organic materials not considered to be food, including the glue in book bindings and wallpaper.  To the best of our knowledge, they do not bite.  Silverfish are reported to be very difficult to eradicate.
