We have just received our new tessere and they are now micro chipped. There is an accompanying letter that days we have to take it to the 'appositi sportelli' to have them validated. I have no idea where these ' appositi sportelli' are to be found! Can anyone help please?


I suspect it means the kiosk/office in your local hospital where you would have to go to pay for any treatment/prescriptions. Have a look at your ASL site and it will probably give a list, with opening hours etc

If they are the same as our Ligurian ones you don't need to have them validated but you can choose to go to the local Agenzia delle Entrate office to have them activated so you can use them as  a Carta Nazionale Servizio online - ie a card letting you access certain information about yourself held by the Agenzia delle Entrate.
