Italy is a member State of the European Union. Under the EU principle of freedom of movement and establishment, EU citizens can live and work in Italy without the need of a work permit. Any EU citizens who intend to transfer residency in Italy and are therefore willing to stay for a period exceeding 3 months must register with local authorities (Comune i.e. local municipality). EEA/EFTA nationals enjoy the same treatment as EU citizens in terms of freedom of movement.
