Italian Court Legalizes Gay Marriage

Italian Court Legalizes Gay Marriage where officially same sex union was not allowed
Italy is one of the few countries in Europe that does not formally recognize any kind of same-sex union.

The court in the Tuscan city of Grosseto, in a decision announced late on Wednesday, said the town hall had to transcribe the marriage into its records, giving the two men the same rights as a heterosexual married couple.

The Local civil registry turned down the couple's request on grounds that two people of the same sex cannot be married under Italian law.

An Italian court has ordered a town to recognize the marriage of a gay couple who were wed in the United States

It is the first time that a gay marriage has been recognized in Italy.

The couple, Stefano Bucci, 57, and Stefano Chigiotti, 68, were married in New York in 2012 and sued Grosseto city hall after an official there refused to transcribe the marriage into its registers.

The court ruled that there was no legal obstacle to the recognition of a gay marriage performed in a country where it is legal.

Now Italian Gay people can visit the countries where gay marriage is legal , they can get married there and it will become legal in Italy also

This will enforce the Italian Politicians to legalizes the gay marriage in Italy

A bold and humanitarian judgement by the Itallian Court
