You're right to be nervous as you're really cutting it fine.

Presumably you're arriving on an international flight and transferring onto a domestic flight. Are these flights on the same booking? Do you hold an EU passport? In which cabin will you be travelling (for the incoming flight)? Will you have checked luggage?

Please provide more details.

As well you should be.
Be prepared to be very pushy, with passport and BP in hand, go to the front of every line.
You'll annoy others, but they will have more time than you.
Don't be shy.
If you have elite status or even if not, ask Alitalia to help.

If you arrive on time, deplane rapidly and walk fast, you should be able to get to the departure gate on time, but chances are small. At any rate, if you are on a single ticket no worry, they'll put you on the next flight and possibly on an AF one.

Is this all booked on one ticket? If so, youíll just get put on the next flight to Paris. If not, youíll have to buy a new ticket.

Well, you could calm down. There is nothing you can do. If you make your flight, great, it's a legal connection. If you don't, you'll be on the next one.
