Towards the end of the 20th century Italy had two land registration system operating at the same time: The Land Register for registration of rights and Cadastre for technical mapping and land management. Both agencies were subordinate to the Ministry of Economy and Finance but were under the jurisdiction of different departments. In 1999 functions of both land registration and performance of land use works were transferred to the uniform Agency of Territories (Agenzia del Territorio). And in 2012 the Agency of Territories was included in the Revenue Agency (Agenzia delle Entrate - tax authority).
In several administrative-territorial units of Italy in the north of the country the uniform land register does not operate, land management occurs there according to the Austrian model, and there is a land register separate from the cadastre.
After the 2012 reform the Revenue Agency, apart from traditional fiscal functions, carries out land register operation.
Functions of the Revenue Agency:
- provision of information about real estate to public
- solution of mapping issues
- collection of technical and economic information
- analysis of the real estate market
- other functions vested upon it by law
The primary task of the cadastre is implementation of fiscal activities by tax authorities. Land use issues in Italy are regulated, first of all, by the Civil Code.
Main cadastral registration units are:
- municipal real estate objects
- cadastral units
The country accounts for around 42 million municipal real estate properties and 75 million cadastral units.
Information in the register is divided into:
- administrative (information about rights, transactions, encumbrances and owners)
- cadastral (descriptive data related to main characteristics of a land plot or object)
The extract from the register contains all above-listed information about real estate.
Apart from the extract (certificate) from the register, one may also obtain results of current cadastral surveys and extracts from maps.
Search in the system, apart from traditional parameters (owner, address) is possible by a unique identification code.
Register in Italy is public, however access to it may be obtained only after payment of a duty. Information may be obtained in electronic or paper form – by means of online service or offices of the Revenue Agency.
Search by data of an individual is possible only by his/her Italian Taxpayer Identification Number (Codice fiscale).
