Hello @bortolotti57, welcome to the wacky world of 3d printing! The reason the layer view looks like that is because it is in "compatibility mode". Cura requires a certain level of OpenGL version (at least 4.1) to display the full layer view. If your graphics system cannot do that level, it falls back to the compatibility mode. That mode can also be forced with a preference but, by default, it should show the full layer view if it can. Either your graphics hardware is too old to provide the required OpenGL version or, more likely, the drivers installed on your system are out of date. Often, updating the drivers can solve this problem. Hope this helps.
