ITALY: Permit of Stay Granted in Milan to an Italian's Same-Sex Partner

The Immigration Police in Milan have issued a permit of stay for a same-sex Serbian spouse of an Italian national. The couple married in Canada. This follows a decision of the Reggio Emilia Court, which allowed the issuance last February of the permit of stay to a same-sex partner who had previously married an Italian national in Spain. The court stated that the issuance of the permit was to be done in accordance with the European Union Charter of Fundamental Rights. This does not constitute a binding precedent for other offices but shows that in Italy there seems to be a more flexible approach to the recognition of some rights for same-sex couples.
