Hi Alessandro

Pull request is applied. Good work!

One thing I noticed is that QgsProjectParser::getStyles uses 
QgsProjectParser::mapLayerFromTypeName. Like that, the styles are only 
returned for layers published as WFS. Is that intentional? Otherwise, 
QgsProjectParser::mapLayerFromStyle might be a better option, as it 
returns the layers published via WMS.
