What others are saying about Piedmont

My wife is an EU national {eire} 

As I understand it she can apply in Italy for some sort of permit to stay which gets around the 90 in 180 day issue. 

Does this mean that as her spouse I can then also gain the same status. 

Question about pharmacies 

I am currently in Italy but managed to forget my invaluable back tablets. 

Do pharmacies require a doctors prescription are can you purchase medication over the counter. 

They are only anti inflammatory? 

Thanks.

Hi everyone - are any of you non-Italian residents looking into the Super Eco Bonus? I am still waiting for information from the bank of how it can work with the trading of tax credits.
