Hello Tupa.. Please update your information from dhobern's suggestions. They are most likely correct. Thank you.

Most likely Emmelina monodactyla, but Emmelina argoteles is also found in Italy.

Could you please add this moth to my mission, "Moths of the World?" Thank you! http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8841...
Gabi, the moth flies with plumes underneath the main wing, and it flaps them together very vigorously.
