On the children of gay couples, the mayors ask Meloni for a meeting

   "We ask for an urgent meeting with Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and Interior Minister Matteo Piantedosi".

This is what we read in a joint note by the mayors of Rome, Milan, Naples, Turin, Bologna, Florence and Bari at the end of a meeting on the children of homosexual couples.

"In the next few hours, the mayor of Milan Beppe Sala will be in Brussels where he will represent our positions - they say again - We will be in Turin on May 12 to reaffirm our common positions".    

   "The daily experience of local administrations - reads the document signed by the mayors of Rome Roberto Gualtieri, of Milan Beppe Sala, of Naples Gaetano Manfredi, of Turin Stefano Lorusso, of Bologna Matteo Lepore, of Florence Dario Nardella, of Bari Antonio Decaro - demonstrates that there are questions of protection to which it is not possible to give an adequate answer. The family life of LGBT+ people is, in the current regulatory framework, not yet fully recognized, generating unequal treatment within the EU framework. For this reason - they continue - we consider it essential to fight any discrimination and fully guarantee the rights of the children of same-parent couples, and we strongly feel the need for common actions that we want to share with mayors of all political orientations".


The constitutional principles of equality and protection of the dignity of the person - conclude the mayors - must guide the legislator towards some steps that can no longer be postponed such as: the registry recognition of the sons and daughters of same-parent couples;

egalitarian marriage with the consequent access to adoptions as provided for heterosexual couples.

We are ready to discuss this with the parliament and the government." 

 "While awaiting a law, we mayors reiterate our willingness to act collectively in the exclusive interest of minors, proceeding with the complete transcription of birth certificates established abroad with two mothers, not attributable to a gestation for others, clearly excluded from the law".

This was underlined in a joint note by the mayors of Rome Roberto Gualtieri, Milan Beppe Sala, Naples Gaetano Manfredi, Turin Stefano Lorusso, Bologna Matteo Lepore, Florence Dario Nardella, Bari Antonio Decaro, who discussed the issue of transcripts from children of same-parent couples.

    "On this point we believe, in fact, that the orientation of the jurisprudence is already very clear in Italy and in Europe - they continued -. In the next few hours, the Mayor of Milan Beppe Sala will be in Brussels where he will represent our positions. We will be in Turin on the 12th May to reaffirm our common positions".
