Buon giorno I am new to the site
Buon giorno I am new to the site as I'm in the process (finally) of applying for my Italian passport. In doing so I've become aware that I should have contacted them regarding heving got married and had a child in recent years. I see from their website I need to get the birth and marriage certificates verified (£30 each) and translated (was quoted £65 each earlier!!!). I'm going to be in Italy in May and wondered if I could just turn up with the cdrtificates and do that in the comune I'm registered in or do I have to shell out nearly £200 to do it via the Consulate? if I could do in Italy, even the whole process would probably work out cheaper.What about translating it myself? Will that be ok in the eyes of the Consulate. God forbid they ever let you do things the easy way. I see form the passport application form that my spouse needs to sign it where I add the details of our son.Any advice gratefully received.
