About the Italian Death Record

The estratto per riassunto dell'atto di morte or extract of the death 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 
  • Place of birth (only the Comune is listed and not the Frazione or hamlet)
  • Age
  • (Date of birth)
  • Civil Status
  • If married the death certificate will include the name of the husband or the wife of the deceased
  • Date and place of death 
  • (The deceased’s address) 

The brackets identify the information that can also be listed in the extract of a death act.

Death records are made in double 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).
