More misinformed rubbish. Italian healthcare cards don't give any indication of the holder's citizenship. Nor do drivers' licenses. In addition, plenty of foreign citizens live in Italy and are members of the national healthcare system.
None of the Italians I've ever met have a problem with foreigners living in their country. It's only you... Many of my Italian friends even encouraged me to take citizenship.
