hello Simone

you can only select on initialMapState at once.
so initialMapStateId = default, pippo will not work as you are requesting
that your project has two different state at the same time, which is simply
not possible.

though what you want to do is more probably:

mapInfo.initialMapStates.default.layers.pippo.selected = true
mapInfo.initialMapStates.default.layers.pippo.hidden= true

im not really sure whats that EAR you added ? is it a child layer of the
pippo layer ?
if so you need to write

 mapInfo.initialMapStates.default.layers.EAR.hidden= true
mapInfo.initialMapStates.default.layers.EAR.selected = true
as the parent layer doesnt need to be explicitly selected (as far as I
