Question: I am not Italian and I live in my Italian property. What shall I do to subject my succession to the Italian law instead of my nationality country law?
Answer: If you are not Italian and your home is in Italy, you can choose the Italian law to apply to your succession. Said choice shall be formalized by a statement in the form of a Will. It could be an Italian Will or a foreign WIll. A non Italian will would probably be less expensive. Depending on your nationality, the Italian might already be the default law to regulate your succession (some foreign legislations refer to the domicile country succession law). If you die on or after 17 August 2015 the EU regulation 650/2012 says the Italian law shall govern your succession, unless you left a Will choosing your national law.
