Another moth hard to identificate, I'm almost sure that the genus is Coleophora, but about the specie I can't talk.
Coleophora peribenanderi - similar
Coleophora trochilella - the color is much dark
Coleophora follicularis - similar
Coleophora striatipennella - similar
Coleophora galbulipennella - the white stripe don't fit with the subject.
All this species are available in the Nord Italy, there are a lot of other Colephora sp., so I think it's impossible to identificate the specie!

Thanks for the help! Marcello
I agree with your shortlist of species and your comments.
Yes, iit is impossible to make a reliable determination of the actual species without performing a genital examination (good genital photos on www.lepiforum.de).
I have a similar problem with Coleophora (and other genera) here in Cyprus.
yes, I think is better to stop at the genre Colephora.
Thank you for your confirm!
