Re: Security Decree - Coming Monday 9/23

George Orwell ended “Animal Farm” with the words: “All Animals are Equal, but some are More Equal than Others.” I sincerely hope “Italians First” refers to ALL Italians.
Very well stated ... "Legge E' Uguale per Tutti"

Re: Recognition of civil unions by Italy

If I’m reading the information in these links correctly, that would mean that although Italy does not recognize same-sex marriages, it does recognize same- and opposite-sex civil unions. In Italy people of the same sex can not enter into a marriage but they can enter into a civil-union which varies...

Re: Recognition of civil unions by Italy

Editing to roll back policies of the previous administration is in progress. Consulates will also have to change their websites to be in compliance with the new rules. It should be understood that the recognition of civil unions in Italy is not a mere "policy" or "rule" put in place by the previous...

Re: Recognition of civil unions by Italy

Legal marriage is required for opposite sex couples if the goal is for the non-Italian spouse to be able to naturalize through marriage to an Italian citizen I feel you should put more weight on the information provided by "TerraLavoro" and you should contact the Italian Embassy or the nearest Cons...

Re: I Just Beat the 1948 Rule

Nothing printed in the English language, from household instruction manuals to recipes to product labels.
Really? EU regulations require it ... that EU languages are covered ... take a look at a chocolate bar!

That would have been the AIRE form. Take a look at your recognition letter, it probably mentions you've been added t...
