Can I rebuild or extend my new Italian property?

Any internal changes to a property usually do not require a building permit, just an announcement of the works commencement to the local municipality. Changes to the facade and other external elements may require one or several permissions, even for properties with no historical value. Extensions also depend on local regulations. Sometimes a property could be extended only by a certain percentage of its current built size. A local geometra will guide you as to the permissions required and regulations related to your property.
