Keywords: Places of Worship; Freedom of Worship; Religious Discrimination; Religious Denominations without a Bilateral Agreement; Islâm; Mosques.

Law n. 2/2015 (Region Lumbardy) has amended the regional legal rules on the administration of the territory as far as religious services are concerned. Already challenged before the Constitutional Court by the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, it makes especially burdensome for religious denominations without a bilateral agreement (including Islâm) to carry out the procedure to obtain areas for the purpose of building places of worship, and it raises serious doubts of constitutional illegitimacy especially as regards the right to religious freedom and the principle of religious denominations' equal freedom (Articles 8 and 19 of the Constitution).
