S.I.A.E.

Music consultation, on-site inspection, tickets sales.

Italian law establishes that those who wish to organise shows or entertainments where intellectual
works are exploited (e.g.: music for a party), should ask SIAE for a
licence and pay the relative amount; If organizers do not pay the
licence,

SIAE inspectors will apply onerous penalties as set by the law. The arrival of the Siae Inspectors will undoubtedly cause a big disruption to the ceremony and wedding reception especially if the Siae fees have not been paid beforehand. To check if payment had been made please visit the following link:

The Italian Society of Authors and Publishers

Siae has also the duty to check that the performers contributions have been paid.

The authority in charge of receiving performers/artists contributions is ENPALS. Enpals will issue a receipt of said payment that the performers or organisers of the event must show upon request.
The sanctions for not being able to show such certificate are extremely high and will be applied to each of the performers hired for the event. Please visit:

We can provide to obtain all the official documents you need for your musical event.

TO AVOID ALL PROBLEMS WE WILL ASK YOU TO PAY THE SIAE'S LICENCE AND THE ENPALS TAXES. Being unable to provide proof of payment will result in very heavy sanctions and will ruin the atmosphere of your event.

WE RECOMMEND YOU TO DISTRUST COMPANIES AND PEOPLE WHO DO NOT ASK YOU TO PAY THE SIAE LICENCE
