La trascrizione del matrimonio omosessuale celebrato all’estero

Guido Noto La Diega, Matteo Winkler

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


What happens if two women get married in England and then they move to Italy, a country that did not introduce same-sex marriage? This chapter answers this question by analysing how Italian legislation dealt with the relevant issues of private international law or conflicts of laws. Italy opted to automatically downgrade same-sex marriages celebrated abroad. Indeed, they are treated as Italian civil partnerships and regulated by the relevant Italian statute (legge sulle unioni civili). This option is criticised by the authors of the chapters for a number of reasons, including the violation of the freedom of movement.
