I have this problem: as you can see

No Prefazione alla Prima Parte

I'd like to delete "\section*{Prefazione alla Prima Parte}" from chapter 1's minitoc. How could I do? Does a MWE serve? Thank you and Best Regards

\usepackage[tight, italian]{minitoc}







\title{\color{red}{\Huge{\textbf{ALGEBRA LINEARE}}}}
\date{27 Febbraio 2021 $-$ xx Mese Anno}






\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{\protect\numberline{}PREFAZIONE GENERALE}


\minitoc %\minilof\minilot



\part{\huge\color{red}{FONDAMENTI DELL'ALGEBRA LINEARE}}

\section*{Prefazione alla Prima Parte}

\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{Prefazione alla Prima Parte}
\Large{Inserire una Prefazione}

\minitoc %\minilof\minilot


  • Yes, we need a MWE.

  • Why do you have \addcontentsline{toc}{section}{Prefazione alla Prima Parte}?

  • Because I want that "Prefazione alla Prima Parte" is only in \tableofcontentes and not in minitoc of chapter 0.

Inspired by https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/197066/107497, you need to tell minitoc that the part has begun. So add \addtocontents{toc}{\protect\partbegin} before the \part command.

By the way, you shouldn't add color/sizing/capitalization to your title/part/chapter/section commands. If you're wanting that styling, you should modify those commands (eg with the titlesec package).
