Many thaks Rafael!!

Searching in internet for more information about the species I found this:

https://www.researchgate.net/public...d_in_the_south_of_the_European_part_of_Russia

In the document I have seen that my insect look more like Corythucha ciliata, isn't it?

Indeed it does! I took this ID too lightly, sorry about that! It is almost certainly C. ciliata as you point out (invasive species from North America), but if you want to be even safer (as that paper deals with Russia only), here's the full list of European species of Tinginae: https://fauna-eu.org/cdm_dataportal/taxon/2492651d-8479-43df-8aa5-5af1c774801f
Cheers
