This paper focuses on young Muslim women who are the first Italian-born descendants of immigrants who have settled in Italy with a view to exploring different types of public self representations. It is argued that these new female subjectivities are seeking legitimacy, speaking to "interconnected publics". We will analyze the first results of this cultural struggle and we will show how long is the road in order to be recognized as citizens in their every day lives.

Keywords: Islam; gender; generation; visibility; citizenship; everyday multiculturalism; space.
