How to send a ‘Lettera Raccomandata con Ricevuta di Ritorno’

First of all what is a ‘Lettera Raccomandata con Ricevuta di Ritorno’?

It is a Registered Letter. In Italy, if you have long term property rental contract and would like to terminate the contract early you must send to the owner a formal request via ‘Lettera Raccomandata con Ricevuta di Ritorno’.

Email, whatsapp or an sms are not enough.


How to do it:


Go to the post office and ask for “modulo per raccomandata con ricevuta di ritorno

They will give you 2 things:

  1. Modulo (velina blu – You keep this as your receipt) to write on the front
  2. Cartolina A/R.(white and orange envelope) to write front and back.


1. Modulo

Complete the details of both the owner and yourself (tenant)

  1. Destinatario (who gets the letter) : owner
  2. Mittente (who sends letter): tenant

2. Cartolina A/R  (Envelope)

  •  Insert the owner’s full name and permanent address (where they live NOT where you rent)

  • Put your full name and address where you currently live (the rental). If the letter is not successfully delivered to the owner it will be returned to you at the address you put here.
