Eu nationals and EU-equated citizens do not need a Visa to study in Italy.
However, they do need to contact the competent Italian Diplomatic Authorities for the legal translation and the legalisation of the qualification. All the applicants that have studied in a Non-Italian High School must acquire the original Dichiarazione di Valore (Declaration of Value), which is the official document required for the enrolment in any Italin University.
The EU students can obtain the legalization, the translation and the “Declaration of Value” of your High School Diploma by the Italian Diplomatic Representatives in the Country in which the title has been obtained or by ENIC-NARIC centers. In Italy you can refer to the CIMEA - Information Centre on Academic Mobility and Equivalence.
