Civil Unions in Tuscany
Tuscany is one of the most popular “destination wedding” areas in the world.
Few places remain etched in the memory and heart like this region, for centuries the land of painters, sculptors, and poets.
If you are looking for an exclusive wedding venue, Tuscany is the perfect place.
Its cities, rich in history and art, the ancient villages, the great cathedrals, and the intimate rocky churches, the breathtaking landscapes and the renowned gastronomy, will enchant you.
As regards, in particular, civil unions, a gay wedding in Tuscany can take advantage of exclusive locations and impeccable services.
What are Civil Unions?
The law No. 76 of May 20, 2016, reforming the existing family law, introduced the so-called civil unions.
They are constituted between two persons of age (legal adults) of the same sex by declaration before the registrar and before two witnesses.
The civil union is registered, and the relative deed kept in the State public archives.
It is also open to foreign citizens residing abroad, making it possible to celebrate one’s civil union in Italy.
Civil Unions in Florence
The splendid Tuscan capital provides some of its most prestigious structures for Civil Unions.
True, the charm of a wedding in front of the altar is unattainable for many, but even a Civil Union can be just as impressive if, as in this case, the location takes your breath away for its beauty.
In the past, the Sala Rossa of Palazzo Vecchio represented one of the focal points of the city’s political history and, for some years now, it has been a favorite among Italians and foreigners to unite civilly.
Recently restored, today it shows itself in all its splendor.
The bright red that dominates, from the walls to the floor, from the curtains to the upholstery, the opulent furnishings, and the ample spaces, give this location a unique solemnity.
Those who love art cannot fail to be enchanted by the magnificent eighteenth-century tapestries that belonged to the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the elaborate frames that finish the high ceilings.
A luxury wedding venue that, as intended by the administration, will leave those who come to marry here not only an unforgettable aesthetic memory but also a better understanding of its history.
La Sala di Lorenzo. For a gay wedding in Florence, the Sala di Lorenzo is one of the most desirable locations.
Located inside Palazzo Vecchio, it is entirely dedicated to Lorenzo the Magnificent, an undisputed figure of the Florentine and European Renaissance, an artist, politician, and patron of high intelligence and sensitivity.
It becomes doubly exciting to say “yes” in such a stimulating setting, where everything around is strongly imbued with culture and history.
The paintings by Giorgio Vasari and Marco di Faenza will not leave couples who suffer the irresistible appeal of art indifferent.
Civil unions in Florence are also celebrated at the locations:
– Salone dei Cinquecento, Palazzo Vecchio
– Sala della Carità, Museo Bardini
– The Villa Vogel Council Chamber
– Giardino delle Rose (The Rose Garden)
The beautiful village of Giovanni Boccaccio is a favorite destination for weddings and civil unions.
And it could not be otherwise given the romantic, timeless atmosphere that pervades its characteristic alleys and medieval buildings, that overlook streets and squares.
Certaldo deserves and has all the credentials to be in the top 3 of the destination wedding locations in Tuscany.
For those who wish to unite civilly, Certaldo provides the beautiful City Council Hall or City Council Chambers for free.
Exchanging the promises of love between the ancient walls of this palace rich in history and charm will have an exceptional flavor.
As an alternative, there is also the Palazzo Pretorio or the Palazzo Giannozzi up in Certaldo Alto.
Civil Unions at the Abbey of San Galgano
Imagine an enchanted place, suspended between history and legend.
This is how we could define the famous Abbey of San Galgano, in the municipality of Chiusdino.
In a location like this, anyone who considers the celebration of civil unions as rather aseptic and dull can’t help but think again.
The architecturally beautiful complex consists of the Gothic church, the nearby monastery ruins and the circular hermitage where the tomb of San Galgano and the “sword in the stone” are located.
It is said that it was the Saint himself who drove it into the ground as a sign of abandonment of a type of dissolute life to trust in God.
Can you imagine a more suggestive setting than this for the most beautiful day?
Being one of the most exclusive destination wedding locations in Tuscany, and the world, the area is also very well equipped for luxury wedding venues.
Among these is the luxury resort of Borgo Santo Pietro in Chiusdino, a magnificent 5-star hotel with restaurant, organic farm, vineyards, gardens, and holistic spa.
The structure offers wedding couples its rooms and its services for unforgettable ceremonies.
Whatever your decision, you can be sure of living a memorable day in a fabulous location.
And you will certainly not want to miss having a wedding album worthy of the event, thanks to the incredible scenery that can be viewed at this location.
The old church without a ceiling, the hermitage and the sword, the breathtaking green landscapes, the expanses of trees as far as the eye can see, the alleys, the lanes and the small squares of Chiusdino, will be the ideal background for photographs that you will never tire of looking at again and again.
