Your previous expert was correct. Prenuptial agreements are NOT valid under Italian law and as such you cannot enter into one for a marriage occurring in Italy as it would be occurring under Italian law. The only way to enter into a prenuptial agreement that would be recognized in Italy, presuming it is not against public policy
, would be if a prenuptial agreement was entered into in a country that does recognize prenuptial agreements for a marriage occurring in another country. Thus, if you plan on marrying in Italy, you cannot have a prenuptial agreement.
If you will be living in Hong Kong, you should marry there and enter into an agreement there OR if you marry in Italy without a prenuptial agreement, you can enter into a post-nuptial agreement (after marriage) in Hong Kong as the Hong Kong courts will recognize such an agreement entered into after marriage.
