I'm trying to set up an appointment with the Italian Consulate on 500 N Michigan Ave., in Chicago. I cannot find anywhere on your website where it states "make an appointment." Need your help.

I have 3 nieces (sisters) who were born in Chicago, IL. They moved to Italy with their parents 20 years ago. Now they all need their Birth Certificates. As an uncle, can I get it for them. Also must they be translated in Italian? Thank you.

Urgent: I overnighted my passport-- will I get it back in time?
It is urgent that I get my passport back this week as I leave for a service trip to Nicaragua! Per Giovanni's instruction, i sent it via mail with a prepaid envelope. I can't seem to reach anyone via phone or email. Please just let me know, if you could. Thank you so much!

Maple Syrup
I am planning a trip to Italy in April. I will be visiting a friend who lives there. I would like to bring some (a small amount of) maple syrup and maple sugar products with me as gifts for him. Will there be any legal problems in importing these items? Thanks!

problem with translation in italian of divorce papers
I was told that some words are not in legal Italian language by Embassy worker.
Word in question:Petizione for american Petition.
Petente for American Petitioner
Rispondente for American respondent
Also question about my name: in 1970 when arrived from Italy was given my Social Security # and the lady at the S.S. said that I could change my name if I wished to do so and so I said to shorten my first name from Mercurio to Mark. Since then all my paper work in the USA was associated with the S.S. # including the matrimony, work, house buying and other except my driver license that carried my original name of Mercurio.
Naturally the matrimony and divorce papers all carried my shortened name of Mark. The worker at the Embassy has given me hard time about the difference from the divorce papers and the passport and because there is nothing i can do about it I suggested that I write explanation and sign it for those that do not know; I even suggested that I notarize such paper.
Any suggestion on how to solve this problem, as I do not wish to use any action versus the embassy worker that clearly is confused in what constitute a legal Italian word. By the way these words are explained on one of the best Italian Dictionary (PALAZZI).
Again I do not wish to have any confrontation either legal or otherwise with the Embassy workers but would like to know which words they know so that I can make them happy. Any suggestions
An almost desperate man
