Italy: Judge orders the recognition of a gay marriage

New York City - Giuseppe Chigiotti and Stefano Bucci
History has been made: affirming that "a same-sex marriage contracted abroad is not against the Italian laws" an Italian judge ordered the recognition of a same-sex marriage contracted in New York City.

In a 5 pages opinion Judge Paolo Cesare Ottati of the Civil Court of Grosseto (Tuscany) ordered the recognition of the marriage of Giuseppe Chigiotti (68) and Stefano Bucci (57) contracted in New York City in late 2012.

According to the judge the Italian Civil Code does not ban same-sex couples from marriage.

The judge concluded that "It's undisputed that this marriage produces lawful effects in the State which was performed (New York, USA) and it is not against that laws".

LGBT rights advocates hailed the decision.
