Okay, then let install always deeper (60mm) in-wall boxes and 3-wire (L,N,E) connections.

I have already 60mm, that's ok (I do not remember the diameter, I think 60mm).
For wires, standard is L+E, right? Then I will ask to install also N-wire.

Standard today, even for in-wall switch boxes, for plug sockets in general, are L,N and E. Having said that, you will find in elderly houses quit often no N wires in in-wall switch boxes.

It looks like a typical socket-outlet wiring, not the one for switches. The blue one should be N, the brown one L and green/yellow Earth.

For a brand new installation I would suggest these deep AND double wide Boxes:

So you have enough place for future use.

I installed these with a quite deep 4-Push-Button-Switch an 2 Fibaros (FGS-221).

I do not want to destroy everything...but how do I remove this swatch from the wall?
This is a "standard German switch".

The shape is a little bit different.
Shall I remove the switch before or remove the frame at first?

Thanks
Marco

You remove the inner part ( the part you pushes) first. At the bottom ( out of sight) there should be a small gap where you can carefully insert (1-2 mm) a small screwdriver , use that as a lever to remove the part.  When that is removed you see the internals, now you can remove the metal bracket by means of loosing 2 screws , 1 left and 1 right.   When there are loose you can completely remove the switch and its bracket.

Ok, that was my idea too, but I wanted to be sure :)
In Italy you start first by removing the frame :)
