Same sex wedding in Italy: civil unions explained

It is important to begin by saying that in Italy regulations differ by municipality, but by and large the bureaucratic steps that are required to have a civil rite at your ceremony are similar throughout the nation.

First, the couple needs to make an appointment with a local municipal employee, to transfer all the requisite documentation to complete the civil union. The ceremony can take place 15 days to a month after this meeting. The ceremony is generally the same everywhere, but it can be personalized with selected readings or specific phrases that represent your union.
