Astronism in Italy refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Italian Republic. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Italy, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Italy oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Italy is split into twenty regions and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Rome.
This national branch of the Astronist Institution manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory.
It is the Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement.
Several terms are used to refer to the presence of Astronism in Italy including:
- Astro-Italian philosophy
- Astro-Italian religion
- Astro-Italian spirituality
- Italian astroncy
- Italian Astronism
- Italian astronomical religion
- Italian Cosmism
- Italian space religion
History of Astronism in Italy
Astronism is not a recognised religion in Italy, but the religious freedoms for Astronists in Italy are generally observed and Astronists are free to express their beliefs and faith publicly. No content about Astronism has been translated into the Italian language as of late 2020 which poses a significant barrier to Italians receiving Astronist materials.
The Astronist religion claims 21,340 people are Astronists in Italy in 2020 and the Astronist Institution has designated the status of Astronist religious freedom in Italy as apathetic.
