Hey Raf;

To me it looks like a very young specimen from Xysticus or closely related genera.

Greetings,

Ciao Clemens, thanks for your opinion, but it does not seem to solve the problem.

Xysticus sp. or unidentified Thomisidae?  :-\

Well, honestly I don't know for sure. In Germany I'd say it's Xysticus. But it turns out you have a lot more species in Italy. I don't even know all genera present there.
