Are you sure about the spelling of canicitti? There is no place in Italy with this name.

Could it perhaps be Canicatti in Agrigento do you think?

Go to www.nonsolocap.it and put in Canicatti and click cerca and then click directly on Canicatti and a webpage for the town will come up with a map and information about the town. The office you are seeking is the civil registry office (Ufficio di Stato Civile) in Canicatti. The address is found right under the MUNICIPIO (City Hall) and provided you can speak and understand Italian the clerks in that office may be able to assist you directly. I daresay there may be a clerk or two who speaks english to some extent. You can always use your discretion on tipping someone who may have extended themselves to you. =Peter=

If you are going to visit friends and family,why not ask one of them to arrange an appointment for you. Perhaps they will offer to help, or at least pave the way for you. :wink:
