Hello, sorry for bad resolution.
I found a lot of these bugs in a bag with muesli that I forget on a table before have an holiday.
Other of these where behind the fridge.
This bug don't fly or jumb, move very slowly.
Could someone help me?
thank you in advance.

Answer
Hello Alfonzo
I cannot make out any detail from this photo but it does resemble a beetle and since it is in the kitchen or food area, My guess is that it is a pantry pest. You should check in all of your dried foods and see if there are more of them. If so you will have to disgard the food
