Italians are not known as being religious. They are known for the pride they have in their culture aka "cultured". Religion is secondary to them, and most are Catholics if they haven't converted to another religion.
Most Italians are baptized Catholic Christians (about 88%). Waldensians and other Protestants make up 2%, and Orthodox Christians a little over 1%, making the total Italian Christian population about 91%. Only about 1/3 of these consider themselves actively affiliated with Christian Churches, despite being baptised, however. About 6% of Italians have no official religion. About 2% of Italians are Muslim.
