The "Dichiarazione Giurata" is a declaration of intent to marry, which is a sworn statement affirming your intention to enter into marriage. This document is sometimes required as part of the documentation for a civil wedding ceremony in Italy. Here's how you typically obtain and complete a Dichiarazione Giurata:

  1. Obtaining the Form: The Dichiarazione Giurata form may be provided by the local municipality (Comune) where you plan to marry. You can usually request the form directly from the Comune's office or download it from their website, if available.
  2. Completing the Form: Once you have the form, you and your partner will need to fill it out with your personal information, such as your names, dates of birth, places of birth, and current addresses. You may also need to provide details about your parents, such as their names and citizenship.
  3. Swearing the Declaration: After completing the form, you must swear or affirm the truthfulness of the information provided before a qualified official. This typically involves signing the document in the presence of a notary public, a consulate officer, or another authorized individual who can administer oaths.
  4. Legalization and Translation: Depending on the requirements of the Comune where you plan to marry, you may need to have the Dichiarazione Giurata legalized with an Apostille stamp and translated into Italian by a certified translator if it's in another language.
  5. Submitting the Document: Once the Dichiarazione Giurata is completed, legalized, and translated (if required), you can submit it along with the other necessary documentation to the Comune where you're getting married. The Comune will process your application and provide further instructions for scheduling your civil ceremony.

Requirements for the Dichiarazione Giurata may vary depending on the specific regulations of the Comune where you plan to marry, so it's essential to check with them directly to ensure that you meet all the necessary requirements and procedures. Additionally, consider consulting with a local wedding planner or legal advisor for guidance on completing the documentation accurately and complying with Italian marriage laws.
