No, look at the eyes. I am not sure what is this, but partly reminds me of Mesiotelus (Liocranidae)

Hi Simeon.
You may have really hit the mark. It should be a young specimen of M. tenuissimus, the only species present in continental southern Italy according to the Pantini and Isaia 2018 Checklist (M. tenellus is known uniquely for
type locality: Veneto, northern Italy).
On aranae.nmbe there is a female specimen very similar to my spider.
I think it's not necessary, but I await another opinion, if it comes, and then I change the title.
Thanks a lot Simeon.
A greeting.
