How to install a swimming pool in your house in Abruzzo.

Posted by on in Restoration works in Italy

 You have bought your dream house in Abruzzo region and now you are thinking about a swimming pool... What permits do you need to install a swimming pool in Italy?

If you have bought a house in Abruzzo and you are thinking about installing a swimming pool, it is important that you follow the right procedure to require the necessary permits before starting any work. Every region in Italy and even every municipality have different laws regarding the installation of swimming pools.

First of all, to install a swimming pool you need to require a permit to the municipality where the house is located; It is not possible to install a pool without any permit. The permit can be either a simple S.C.I.A. or a building project. If you have bought a land and you are building your house from scratch or if you are restoring a ruin and you intend to extend it, then you will need a building project. An engineer, an architect or a geometra of your choice will apply for your building project. Besides all the structural works, the building project can also cover the installation of the pool.

On the other hand, if the house is already built and you just need to install the pool, you have to ask a geometra to apply for a S.C.I.A.

S.C.I.A. means 'Segnalazione Certificata Inizio Attivita’, this document is necessary when you intend to renovate the house without changing its structure: renovate a bathroom, knock down a partition wall, change the layout of the rooms, etc…The S.C.I.A. is also required if you intend to install a swimming pool. Normally a geometra charges 500,00 / 600,00 euro to submit a S.C.I.A.

In any case is always better to ask the advice of a geometra because the type of permit is also related to size of the pool. If the pool has a volume that is above the 20% of the size of the house, it is necessary to apply for a building project. Differently, if the volume of the pool is less than the 20% of the volume of the building a S.C.I.A. is acceptable.
