I am an EU citizen (Italian if that matters) planning to move to Germany to study at a university, that is for one year long period.
Do I need to apply for a residence permit or some related document?
You do not need a resident permit as an EU national. However you need to register with the local police (Bürgeramt) within 7 days of finding permanent residence.
