Informazioni sull'evento

Presents: Giuseppina Azzolini

Director and Coordinator of the ACLI Patronage

Curated by Cristina Campassi

Giuseppina Azzolini, Director and Coordinator of the ACLI Patronage in the USA (and previously in Canada and Australia) was exhaustive in illustrating the administrative practices relating to pensions, citizenship and medical assistance for us Italians residing abroad.

The event was interesting and very useful: we learned a lot of information, got to know the function of the ACLI Patronage and its complementarity with the consular institutions on site and the competent offices in Italy. Ms. Azzolini guided us in navigating various aspects of the complex pension system and suggested solutions to practical problems common to all of us overseas commuters.

Here are some gems for your notebook:

  • The ACLI Patronato offers free consultations to Italians residing abroad on services such as Italian citizenship, taxation, social security and assistance. The ACLI Patronato collaborates with local consulates and Italian administrations and assists in the explanation and preparation of the documentation necessary for the required practices. You can contact the website:
  • To navigate the intricacies of the Italian pension system, consult the website:
  • To obtain medical assistance in Italy, contact the Local Health Authority (ASL) of your municipality of AIRE registration to obtain the medical card of the Italian national health system. This medical assistance will be limited to emergencies and will last a maximum of 3 months. Full medical care (not just for emergencies) or extended beyond 3 months requires private insurance.
  • Italian citizens residing abroad with property in Italy are subject to IMU taxation as a second home.
