Notes on official certification
We cannot accept a substitute declaration/self-declaration (“Autocertificazione/ Dichiarazione Sostitutiva della Certificazione”) as certification. In Italy, attestations and other official documents for administrative procedures may be replaced by a simple self-declaration. This is not possible for transactions with foreign government authorities or private institutions.
We are also unable to accept self-declarations attested by other institutions which have not issued the original document (e. g. by a Marca da Bollo).
