In response to a question on this forum about response time from southern Italy, we just received an Extracted Transmission Birth Certificate from the L'Ufficiale dello Stato Civile in the Comune di Platania, Catanzaro Calabria. We first made contact with by letter in June afterwhich they responded in five weeks with a question. We wrote back three weeks ago and received the birth certificate today. So, I'd say response time from southern Italy is excellent -- but I'm rather not surprised, having lived in Central Italy myself for a number of years and being very proud of the way they do things over there. If you don't speak Italian, you can write to them in English but try to include as many family names as possible when you do.
