I think it is important to mention that you need NOT to uninstall your primary language. The installer adds only missing plugins which are necessary to work with RTL texts. If you want to work with the UI in your primary language you have to change back the preferences to that language.

I installed the InDesign version for Arabic following your instructions.

But when I restore my Italian language from the Preferences, InDesign continues to open the Arabic version and not my previous one by default. Can you help me? Thanks

Normally InDesign draws its language from the primary language of the OS. The preference in the CC App controls the installation.
