If you are thinking of staying in Italy for a long time, or moving there permanently it is essential that you obtain an Italian tax code ( Codice Fiscale). This is the Italian equivalent of National Insurance number and tax code. Without this you will be unable to open a bank account, purchase property, or work and do any kind of business in Italy. 

If you are in UK:

It is possible to obtain your Codice Fiscale  through the Italian Consulate in London.
Your request must sent in writing including full details (surname, name, place and date of birth, address in the UK), and a copy of the passport where such details, as well as the signature, are shown. In the case of a married woman, the birth certificate and the marriage certificate are also required. Mail your request to:

Italian Consulate General
38 Eaton Place

You should receive your Codice Fiscale within 7-10 days and there is no fee to pay.

If you are in Italy:

It is of course possible to obtain your Codice Fiscale in any of the tax offices situated in the provincial capitals. It is a very simple process but you may have to queue for some time or just simply let your real estate agency deal with it. 

After obtaining your Codice Fiscale we will help you to open of an account in an Italian bank.  Keep in mind, Italian banks typically open in the morning from 8.30 am until 1.00 pm, and then reopen in the afternoon for an hour between 3.00 pm and 4.00 pm. Generally banks are closed on Saturdays and Sundays, on all public holidays, and in the afternoon on the day before the public holiday.
