Upon arrival in Italy, you will be allowed to temporarily live in accommodation provided by the Federation of Evangelical Churches (Fcei) and the Community of Sant’Egidio. In these communities you can live for free, alone or with your family, for a year or until you find another accommodation. At the end of the first year, you should find accommodation in order to regularly live in Italy, which you can also obtain a place to stay thanks to the hospitality of a friend / family member or by renting or buying a house. The family/friend who offers you hospitality has the obligation to communicate it within 48 hours to the Police Headquarters, the Commissariat, the Municipality or the competent Employment Centre. To rent a house, you have to sign a rental contract that establishes the monthly rent costs and the duration, among other things. The contract must be registered with the Agenzia delle Entrate within 30 days of the signing of the contact. On the other hand, you have the right to purchase a house under the same conditions as Italian citizens. Finally, you also have the right to live in public houses made available by the regions or other local authorities by applying to the municipality in which you reside.
