Under Italian law, vital records are maintained by the civil registry office (Ufficio anagrafe e stato civile) in the town hall (comune) where the event occurred. No central, regional, or provincial office is established that keeps such records. When applying for one of these certificates, the applicant must supply all relevant information and submit the request written in the Italian language.
