This note is a commentary to the decision rendered by the ECHR on 21st July 2015 in the Oliari and Others v. Italy case (App. No(s) 18766/11 and 36030/11). The case concerned three Italian couples who complained about the impossibility of getting married under the Italian judicial system, which, in combination with the lack of any laws regarding same-sex unions, has breached the ECHR. The ruling has convicted Italy and requires it to provide for legal recognition of same-sex couples.
