Istituto Gonzaga, a catholic school in Milan

In the past few days in Italy, several municipalities have started asking religious schools for paying taxes for property and local services, despite the resistence of the Catholic Church.

The request of the municipalities arrives as a result of the sentence of the Italian Supreme Court of Cassation dating back to the 8th of July, that recognised as legitime the request of the Municipality of Livorno that was asking also to religious schools for paying the taxes related to the ownership of the property and the services of the local municipality.

The first requests arrive from the Municipality of Bogliasco, next to Genova, and from the deputies of Movimento 5 Stelle of the regional counseil of Lombardy. The first case is that of the mayor Luca Pastorino that in last years received several refusal for his requests payment due to the religious nursery school and retirement home. In the second case, the M5S party asks to the regional government to assure that the local administrations of the region regularly apply the sentence of the Supreme Court.

The sentence of the Court and its consequences[]

The case on which the Court has ruled was that of the religious schools Santo Spirito and Immacolata in Livorno (Tuscany), that will have to pay 422,000 Euros for the arrears of the period from 2004 to 2009. The request was advanced by the Municipality of Livorno in 2010.

The reason of the judge are based on the fact that “seen that the users of the private schools pay a frequency fee, this kind of activity is considered as a commercial one”.

Nevertheless in 2014 the Italian tax discipline over municipality service and private property has changed from the ICI system to IMU system, by the Monti government, under request of the European Union. A mean cost per student was introduced in order to tax only the schools that receive a fee higher than a the mean cost per student fixed by the State.

Anyway, the new tax discipline is not retroactive, so the municipality may ask the arrears for each of the ten years before the new law of 2014.

The reactions of the politicians and of the government[]

After the first reaction of the Minister of Education Stefania Giannini who said that a “more general reflection” is needed, the government has announced by undersecretary of the Prime minister Claudio De Vincenti that “a discussion table will be opened with the non-profit associations, religious association included”.

The undersecretary for the Education Mr. Toccafondi expects that “many schools will increase their fees or they will quit. Then the State will have to find new resources to build new structures and manage them”.

Also the President of Region Lombardy, Roberto Maroni, has reacted proposing some regional counter-measures to finance private schools.

The reactions of Catholic Church and secularist associations[]

The Secretary of CEI (Italian Episcopal Conference), Nunzio Galatino, has defined the sentence as dangerous and ideological: “We are in front of a dangerous sentence. Who takes the decisions, do it with less ideology. Because I have the clear sensation that with this way of thinking, they wait the praise of some ideologized supporters. Indeed, they don’t understand what kind of good service private schools held”.

At the same time, the Italian secularist associations fear that the Government will modify the law in order to persist with the exception for the religious schools. The secularist magazine MicroMega define the sentence as historic. It points out on the fact that the service offered by private confessional schools are religiously characterized, subjected to high fees and authorized to select their future students.

The association UAAR (Union of Rationalist Atheists and Agnostics) has launched a petition that has already got 9,000 signatures, asking the government to respect and execute the sentence of the Supreme Court. It is also encouraging the citizens to ask to their mayors to apply the law on their territory.
