EU Employed Workers
As an EU resident, you do not need a Work Visa to enter Italy, as well as you do not need to obtain the Permesso di Soggiorno as long as you have a valid national ID (such as a Passport). However, when you settle in Milano for more than 90 days, you should enlist as temporary resident, or alternatively you may apply for residence.
