    Hi @Alessandro ,
    Welcome to Q&A forum!

    • Was there any error message when this issue occurred? If yes, please describe it in detail or share a screenshot with us.
    • Do Word and PowerPoint also have this issue?
    • When did this issue start? Have you installed any other third-party software before? Such as, third-party Add-ins.

    According to my research, some incompatible third-party software of Mac may cause this issue. Please disable or uninstall them to check.

    It is also recommended that you try starting Mac in Safe Mode so that we can rule out third party programs interfering with Office startup:

    Any updates, please let me know.
