Marriage of a U.S. Citizen

Consular District of Naples

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

  • obtain the “Dichiarazione Giurata” from the Consulate General Naples or from the Consular Agent in Palermo;
  • have the Dichiarazione Giurata legalized by the Legalization Office of the Naples or Palermo Prefettura.  If you plan to marry on the Amalfi coast and would like to take care of the authentication on the same day, you may wish to go to the Legalization Office of the Salerno Prefettura;
  •  obtain the Atto Notorio, unless you already received it from the Italian Consulate in the U.S.;
