Children at birth: possibility of adding the mother's surname together with the father surname

The ruling of the Constitutional Court n. 286 dell'8.11.2016 brought important news. Now is possible for parents, if both agree, to convey to the child at birth the mother's surname IN ADDITION to the paternal one. In the case of children born abroad to parents who are both Italian, you can transcribe in Italy the foreign birth certificate containing the mother's surname IN ADDITION to the paternal one. For more detailed information please contact the Consulate.
