It is important when taking this short questionnaire consisting of a maximum of seven questions that one sets aside any preconceived ideas about wills in general.

Assets in Italy usually pass to the immediate and/or certain family members irrespective of the existence of a will or its contents even after many years.

DISCLAIMER. The questions that follow represent basic guidelines for those wishing to gain clarity on the realities of succession laws in Italy; they are not intended to lead one to a definitive conclusive on inheritance rights since your situation may fall outside the basic parameters in this introduction to Italian inheritance laws.
