Here are the addresses to write for Italian military records, BUT, I am wondering if this will fall under the Italian privacy law, which I believe is 70
years??
Maybe one of our posters in Italy will clarify on the law.

Hello,
Raffaella welcome back.
About the privacy law, for a military records, I have an experience to share with you.
Some months ago I wanted to request a copy of military record of my wife's grandfather, already died, who was born on 1920, it means 86 years ago.
But since the military record was 66 years old, the manager of Military District told me that the only people qualified to request this documents are the next of kins.
So the privacy law is for those documents, records younger than 70 years old.
Anyone can request any record older than 70 years ago, so the record has to be done before 1936
bye Riccardo

Pasquale Gavita next of kin can send a request, written in italian, to have his military record to

Distretto Militare
Piazza Garibaldi
66100 Chieti
Italy


Before writing to Distretto Militare I suggest you to request a copy of his birth certificate (estratto per riassunto dell'atto di nascita) to have the right informations about him , like name, exact date of birth, name of parents
Send the request to

Comune
Ufficio di Stato Civile
Via Napoli
67038 Scanno (AQ)
Italy


I hope it helps,
bye Riccardo :lol:

Suanj,
yes you are right.
Next of kins can proof to be related to the ancestor whom they are requesting some documents, so usually they don't need to wait 70 years to the request the integral copy of that record.
But they have to tell the legittimate reason why they are requesting it.
