Today we went back to the Ufficio Anagrafe to show them our permesso di soggiorni that we picked up yesterday. This process was very quick as they had all of our information and were just waiting for us to change our permesso di soggiorno to the Provincia di Ascoli Piceno. They made a quick copy of our cards and that was finished.
We then walked across the room to get our Carta d’Identita, or resident identity card, which can be used as an official id. This document also has other advantages including that it provides tax advantages when buying property, allows you to buy a car and according to officials at the Ufficio Immigrazione, CISL and Ufficio Anagrafe will help us to be able to work in Italy.
After fourteen months in Italy and ten months in Ascoli Piceno we now have all of the official documents we need; at least until they require renewal in a few years.
