Italian Electronic Identity Card

In Italy, it is mandatory to use a biometric photo for all identity documents. This regulation is established in accordance with Article 4 of the identity document law and aims to enable automatic photo verification. The introduction of the electronic identity card, known as the CIE, laid the foundation for these requirements. The CIE is equipped with a microchip in which biometric information such as the photo is stored.
