Visa Pick Up
I need to pick up an Italian Visa and I would like to do it in Philadelphia, because I am in Delaware right now, but I have all my information and license stuff in California. Do I have to get it in California or can I get it in Philadelphia. And if I get it in California, can my mom pick it up for me or do I have to be there in person!

where to find the User, Password information for traffic fines
Just wanted to let everyone know: the user name and password you need to sign into the italian payment website are on the BACK SIDE of the traffic notification, in teensy-tiny type. Once you find that, you can pay your ticket on the website they list as long as you have a credit card....

trying to pay a Florence traffic violation fine
I am trying to pay a traffic fine incurred in Florence in December of 2010. All I have is the violation report, not a letter from any collection agency (which I understand might give me a user ID and password so I could pay online).

Can anyone help me out here?

passport status
My brother Peter and myself have been working on our rightful Italian citizenship since 1996. We have an enormous amount of time and money in this endeavor. The translator you recomended has had our documents for over 3 years. We are very concerned and frustrated. Please respond.

Searching for lost Italian sibling
I recently learned that my late father had a child out of wedlock during WWII, while stationed in Italy.

His Army records are incomplete about this issue.

I do know her name (Sophia or Sofia)and she was able to track him back to Philadelphia after his discharge in 1945.

Unfortunately, no records exist regarding possible paternity and/or support that was established in this matter.

is there any type of data base in Italy which identifies chidren on who were left behind by US servicemen?

Can you help?
