Question: How to obtain a cosmetology / hairdressing licence/certification in Italy? How do I open a salon in Italy as an American hair stylist?

I can t find any info on Italy s cosmetology regulations. Some countries do not regulate this industry so anyone can perform services, but I know Italy does regulate it. I have a Kansas Cosmetology license. I ve looked into CIDESCO, but that is more for Esthetics and Spa therapy rather than hairdressing. I ve researched the details of work visas, and know it is virtaully impossible to obtain one as just an employee. So I know the only loophole is to open my own business to obtain a work visa. Are there hour requirements for a license in Italy? How does it work there?
