Create photocopies of both parties\' driver\'s license, passport, and any visa documents if you are a current resident (permisso di soggiorno, carta d\'identita)
Obtain official copy of both parties\' birth certificates in *long form*, and also a translation of it in Italian.
Get both language versions of birth certificate authenticated with an Apostille by the Dept. of State (in whichever state they were issued)
If either party is divorced, you must also obtain a divorce decree from whichever county it was finalized in.
You will also need to translate the decree into Italian, and have both language versions authenticated with an Apostille by the Dept. of State (in whichever state they were issued)
With these documents ready, make an appointment at the nearest Italian consulate/embassy in US for an Atto Notorio. This certifies to Italian authorities your ID and freedom to marry (no impediments).
You will need to bring 2 witnesses to this Atto Notorio appointment. You will also need copies of their driver\'s license.
Note: you must receive the Atto Notorio *within* a 3 month period BEFORE the wedding date :)
If both parties are American citizens, you will receive TWO Atto Notorio documents. One for each spouse.
Have available ~$150 for Atto Notorio
Next doc: Nulla Osta for marriage. Obtain this from an American embassy/consulate once you are in Italy. Like the Atto Notorio, this also certifies that there are no legal impediments to marry.
If both parties are American citizens, you will receive TWO Nulla Osta documents. One for each spouse.
With those documents, go to the nearest Tobacco shop ("Tabacchi") to purchase TWO "marco da bollo" stamps for 16 Euro (one for each spouse).
Hand-deliver these documents with the marco da bollo stamps to the local prefettura (police station). You will receive certified signatures on the Nulla Osta during that visit.
Take: Atto Notorios + certified Null Ostas + your IDs + copies if your IDs + birth certificate/divorce decrees (and translations) to town hall where you wish to marry. Make an appointment.
You are ready! Congratulations!
