Re: Any word on the Antenati server problems..?

Seems like nobody's home over at Antenati. Very frustrating to see this important site just languish. My guess is that underpaid apathetic employees are just in no hurry to do anything.

@pam.cuneo

Yes, it is standard procedure for a comune to ask for your valid identification (driver's license, passport etc.) as a condition to release a vital record.
