Islam in Italy PDF Print E-mail

Rome
Rome
The history of Islam in Italy dates back to the 9th century, when Sicily and some regions in Peninsular Italy were brought under Muslim rule. There was Muslim presence in Italy from 827 till 1300.

 

Thereafter, until the 1970s Islam was almost entirely absent in Italy. In the 1970s, the first Somali immigrants began to arrive. In recent years, there has been migration from Morocco, Egypt and Tunisia. There are about 1.5 million Muslims in Italy or 1.4% of the population. Muslims make up 34% of the 2,400,000 foreign residents living in Italy. Italian converts to Islam number around 10,000. Islam is not yet formally recognized by the state.
 
Under the Muslims, agriculture in Sicily prospered and became export oriented. Arts and crafts flourished in the cities. Palermo, the Muslim capital of the island, had 300,000 inhabitants at that time, more than all the cities of Germany combined. At the beginning of the 11th century, Muslims made up half of the population of Sicily. From Sicily, the Muslims launched attacks on the mainland even attacking Rome. After the Normans conquered Italy, a small Muslim population remained until expelled by Frederick II. The Ottoman Turks carried out attacks on Italy in the 1500’s and conquered some areas.
 
The construction of mosques has been blocked in some cities. Italy does not have many prominent Muslim scholars. Many Muslims rely on foreign scholars. Some Italian Muslims belong to religious associations like the Islamic Cultural Center in Rome, which is situated in what is reputed to be the largest mosque in Europe: the Grand Mosque of Rome.
