PEC: what is it, why should you need a PEC address, and how to get one

  1. I had no idea of the PEC account system and was struggling to pay my water bills. David has made this process so simple and transparent, giving me clear instructions and guidance. I am delighted that i can now manage my own water bills using this system, it is so more secure and reliable.
    Many thanks to #David for his considerate and informed advise…and his patience.

      Hi Nick,
      Thank you for your nice comment.

      I’m happy to read that your pec address makes it easier for you to pay your bills. A pec address is very useful indeed.

      Please let me know if there is anything else that I can do for you.


  2. As a non-resident seeking dual citizenship, I had not heard of a PEC account or why I would need one. David clearly explained the important reasons why and then set me up with a new PEC email address. The process was quick, easy, and professional. I intend to use David’s services for all things Italian as I become an Italian citizen. It is very comforting to know that I have David and his expertise to help me navigate Italian government processes and other matters of Italian citizenship with which I have no familiarity. We’ve all heard of the difficulties and delays in working with the Italian authorities, and its great to have David on my side helping me with such matters. Thanks, David!

  4. Could we send to a PEC Email using any other email Provider to -> Could we do that ?
    Also could we use a third party provider like mailchimp or mailgun to send such emails to PEC emails

      Dear Abhishek,
      In order for your message to have legal value, you will need to send a PEC message from your Italian PEC address to another Italian PEC address (Italian public administration, citizens, private companies etc.), so not from a gmail account for example.

  5. David was extremely efficient and helpful to create the PEC account for our company in Switzerland. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

      Dear Rolf,
      Thank you for your kind comment.

      Please let me know if there is anything else that I can do for you (for example if you need assistance with the digital signature).


  6. Hi. How many characters could a PEC address have ? We are getting ready to store the PEC address in our systems if required and want to know the max number of characters it could be . Is there a limit ?

    • David

      I am not sure I understood your question and case (number of characters? store a pec address in a system?).
      A pec address generally reflects the name of the person or of the company that “owns” it. However, if you have a technical question you should ask your provider to be sure that you get the exact answer you need.

      Thank you
