Although the legal system recognizes some rights to minors, in Italy the right to act fully occurs only at one’s eighteenth birthday. First, the minor is granted the right to succession and to receive gifts; upon reaching the age of six she/he is granted the right to education (compulsory). At ten, the child may obtain an individual passport, whereas at eleven she/he can use an elevator without being accompanied by an adult; at fourteen she/he can be subjected to criminal proceedings, or give testimony before a judge, and drive a motorized cycle. At fifteen, she/he is given the right to work at a company, whereas at sixteen she/he can marry, obtain a license to carry a gun for hunting purposes, drive two-wheels vehicles and be recognized as an inventor.
