About the Italian Birth Record

The estratto per riassunto dell'atto di nascita, or extract of a birth act (which is the format required by the Italian Consulate to process your application for Dual Citizenship), provides the following information: 

  • Name of the Comune and of the Province, Year, Part, Series and Record Number
  • Full name of the child
  • Place of birth (only the Comune is listed; usually not the Frazione or hamlet)
  • Date of Birth 
  • (Time of Birth)
  • Sex
  • Parent’s names
  • Side notation/s, i.e. any event such as marriage, death or loss of citizenship is listed in the side notation of the original birth act.

If a child was illegitimate, the civil vital registration records officer would list "unknown" under the parents' names. 

Birth records are issued in dual copy. One copy remains at the Comune, or Ufficio di Stato Civile, while the other copy is sent to the “Procura della Repubblica” (Country Court at province level).
