Do you guys know if there is passport control and stamp when flying from Romania to Milan-Italy?

I would like to know that because I need to get my passport stamped in Italy.

Romania has not yet been integrated into the Schengen border-control-free travel area, so there will be passport control between Romania and Italy.

Yes, you have to go through immigration and passport control when flying from Romania to Italy, but your passport will only be stamped if your are a non-EU/EEA citizen. If you e.g. have a Romanian passport, your passport will not be stamped when entering Italy.

Note that this answer might be misunderstood. Romanian citizens are not necessarily required to have a passport to enter Italy, a national ID card is sufficient. – vsz Feb 4 at 7:13
@vsz I am not sure why that should be misunderstood. It is also not relevant to the question asked, wether Romanian citizens can use their national id card as a travel document when entering Italy. – Tor-Einar Jarnbjo Feb 4 at 12:34
People might get the idea that the passports are mandatory. – vsz Feb 4 at 12:55
@vsz for non-EU/EEA citizens, passports are mandatory. (I presume the OP is a non-EU/EEA citizen because of the requirement to have a passport stamp.) – phoog Feb 4 at 15:32
@phoog : you are right, nowhere in the question says the OP is a Romanian citizen, just that the flight starts in Romania. From all we know the OP might have started the journey literally anywhere. But still, "If you e.g. have a Romanian passport, your passport will not be stamped when entering Italy." might give the impression that Romanian citizens are required to have a passport to enter Italy. – vsz Feb 4 at 16:18
