A power of attorney (“procura generale” or “procura speciale”) must be drafted and signed in a valid form acceptable in Italy, in order to give the power to another person to carry out transactions such as the purchase or sale of property, to act in a succession in Italy, to deal with financial affairs and bank accounts or to set up a company. If the power of attorney is signed in Italy, the signature must be witnessed by a Notary Public.
