Criminal record certificate – Certificato penale del Casellario Giudiziale

In some cases you may be required to prove that you have not been convicted of any criminal offense while you were living in Italy. For example, many employers request that their soon-to-be employees prove that they have not been convicted of any crime during their stay on the Italian soil.

How can you prove that you have no criminal record in Italy?

There is a specific certificate called certificato penale del casellario giudiziale (criminal record certificate) that you can request from the competent Italian authority (Procura della Repubblica), which can prove that while you were staying in Italy you were not convicted of any crime.

In fact, the criminal record certificate contains the list of criminal convictions that have become final, which means that they can no longer be appealed to, for crimes that an Italian or foreign citizen has committed in the Italian territory.

Here is an example of a criminal record certificate

When you read “NULLA” (=”nothing”), it means that the person in question has not been convicted of any crime. If, on the contrary, there are convictions, they will be listed, as said above. n1

Costs

The cost of issuing the certificate amounts to € 19.87 (of which € 16 for stamps and € 3.87 for certificate fees). In case of an urgent request, an additional stamp of € 3.87 is required.

Use of the certificate abroad

Please note that the certificate is issued in Italian. Therefore, if you need to use the certificate abroad, you will need to add the legalization/Apostille and translation.

n1 There are some exemptions. For example, convictions for fines defined administratively or with an oblation (Presidential Decree 313/2002 – Consolidated Law on Criminal Records), the sentences issued by the Justice of the Peace, and some other cases will not appear in the list. Moreover, in some cases, the judge may grant the benefit of the “non mention”, consisting in the non-inclusion of the sentence in the criminal record, only if requested by private individuals and not for electoral reasons. These convictions will therefore not be indicated in the criminal record certificate.

    I previously lived in Italy and currently in Denmark where I recently started working. My employer required an Italian certificate of criminal record and I turned to Vademecum Italia for assistance. David, who works/runs Vademecum Italia, efficiently assisted me in obtaining my certificate. The process was very quick and very simple, I filed a request with David on Tuesday and received my certificate of criminal record by email on Friday morning.
    I would highly recommend his services to anyone who wishes to obtain an Italian certificate of criminal record.

    To Whom it concerns,

    I have dealt with David directly (online) in order to attain my own certificate and found him to have been trustworthy and efficient in his work. I was very skeptical at first about giving details online and paying money to someone I had not met! However, these fears turned out to be unfounded. After I bit the bullet and sent David my documents and payment, he quickly set about retrieving my documents and sent them to me immediately. I had received my digital copy of the certificate within 3 days of agreeing to allow him to acquire them on my behalf. I know it seems risky and somewhat naive to do this online but I can say honestly that David was definitely an honest broker in my case and I am very happy with his services.
    P.S: I investigated other solicitors in Rome to see about handling this on my behalf and their fees were ridiculous!! Go with David…

    I contacted David to see if he could assist with the Criminal record certificate that we needed for a visa application. David was great to work with through the whole process. He explained the entire process to me first over the phone, so I understood what the whole process looked like. I made my request on Tuesday morning and had the scanned documents by Thursday afternoon. During this time, David was very understanding of my multiple queries and took the time to answer all my questions. I would highly recommend his services to anyone needing these documents.
