I've tried to do a little bit of searching, and I can't seem to find an equivalent to the pronouns I use for myself in English (They/them or e/em) and nothing for a neutral equivalent to adjective endings. So what do non-binary Italians do when they need to refer to themselves, or describe themselves with adjectives like "alto" or "bella"?

There is no common way to express such idea, there are some proposals like using the letter "u" at the end (altu, bellu), somebody use the symbol " * " (alt*, bell*). The last way I found is the use of the schwa ("ǝ" and "з"), is described in this website: https://www.italianoinclusivo.it/ (in Italian).
