Consular District of Milan

If you have read the general information regarding the marriage of U.S. citizens in Italy, you should now know that you will need to:

  • obtain the “Dichiarazione Giurata” from the Consulate General Milan or from the Consular Agent in Venice or Genoa;
  • have the Dichiarazione Giurata legalized by the Legalization Office of the local Prefettura. Please note that the Dichiarazione Giurata obtained at the Milan Consulate General can be legalized at all the Prefetturas within the jurisdiction of Milan whereas the Dichiarazione Giurata obtained at the Consular Agencies in Venice or Genoa must be legalized by the respective Prefetturas in Venice or Genoa.
  • obtain the Atto Notorio, unless you already received it from the Italian Consulate in the U.S.;
