N.B.: Decree-Law No. 47 of 28/03/2014, converted into Law No. 80 of 23/05/2014, states in Art. 5 that "Any person unlawfully occupying a property may not apply for residency or for connection of the property to public services and the acts issued in violation of this prohibition are voided for all legal purposes".

At District no. 3 – villa Tacchi, viale della Pace 89 – the change of residence service is available only by appointment made online via the above link.
You can check the progress of your application for change of residency via the CITIZENS’ PORTAL. Simply register through the Myld regional authentication system at www.comune.vicenza.it/portaledelcittadino and submit an accreditation application.
Under Decree-Law no. 5 of 9 February 2012 and circular no. 9 of 27 April 2012 from the Interior ministry department of internal and territorial affairs (Ministero del'Interno dipartimento Affari interni e Territoriali), you can change your residence without going to the municipal offices. Instead, you can send your paperwork using one of these alternatives:
1. the declaration is signed with a digital signature certified by an accredited certification body;
2. OR you identify yourself using your electronic identity card or national services card (carta nazionale dei servizi);
3. OR the declaration is sent from your certified email (PEC) address;
4. OR you scan the hand-signed declaration and your identity document and send them by ordinary email.
Under Decree-Law no. 5/2012, residence declarations sent to the Registry office (Ufficio Anagrafe) as stated above are registered by the Registry officer within 2 working days of receipt. From then, the individual residence certificates and family-status certificates can be issued. For all the other certificates – including the identity card – you will need to wait until the municipality where you lived before has sent all your personal details and we have checked that you meet the requirements. You may also have to show suitable documentation, where required. After the residence declaration has been recorded, the Registry officer has to check that your declaration is true and accurate. Someone will come to see you where you live. To facilitate the controls relating to your residency, You must show a copy of the documentation that entitles you to stay there – e.g. a tenancy or lease agreement, or the title deeds.
Because of article 5, paragraphs 4 and 5, of Decree-Law no. 5/2012 and article 75 of Presidential Decree no. 445/2000, if you make false statements, then you will lose the benefits that you gained by making them. This means that your residence will be cancelled, and your situation will return to how it was before. Also, the Registry officer will have to report you to the law-enforcement authorities, because what you told us did not match what we found when we checked.
By article 76 of Presidential Decree no. 445/2000, if you make false statements, then you will be punished under the Criminal code and the relevant special laws.
