Jessica Phelan reports:

Italy’s Data Protection Authority has advised against a reform proposed by Interior Minister Matteo Salvini that would replace the word ‘parents’ with ‘mother and father’ on children’s national ID cards.

The move to favour heterosexual parents was one of Salvini’s earliest pledges upon taking office earlier this year, following an election campaign in which he and his League party played to a socially conservative base.

Current application forms for the new electronic Italian ID cards for minors ask for the name of “parent 1” and “parent 2”, which on request can be added to the card itself, notably to make it easier for parents to travel abroad with their children using an ID card instead of a passport.
