Who can make a will?


Any person over the age of majority and of sound mind.

How to make a will?*


The holographic will can be public or secret.

  • In order to be valid, it must meet the following requirements: being handwritten by the testator, being dated and signed. A notary can then notarized it.
  • The public will be drawn up by a notary in the presence of two witnesses and is notarized by the notary.
  • The secret will be drawn up by the testator and delivered to the notary  in the presence of two witnesses.

Can I change or revoke my will?


The will can be changed or withdrawn at any time. Therefore is a highly flexible choice.

In the absence of a will, who inherits my assets?*


If there is no will, relatives up to the sixth grade can claim their right to a portion of the heritage.
It’ s important to know that even in a presence of a will, the Italian law protect close relatives.
In any case they are entitled to a portion of the estate, the so-called “reserve quota“.
The testator has the power to allocate only the “available quota “ according to her/his will.
In the absence of heirs, the testator may freely dispose of  her/his assets without any constraint.
It’ s important to remember that, in the absence of will and heirs, the assets are automatically acquired by the State.
