Swimming pool in Siracusa
Do I need permission to have a pool in Siracusa?
Any pool that is interred - ie not free standing above ground, needs a permission. In the Siracusa area it is not a forgone conclusion that permission will be granted. Avoid blue mosaic guitar shaped pools, you are much more likely to be given permission for a rectangular pool in a uniform colour. At the minimum you will need professional (geometra/ingegnere) to draw up plans and submit them to the comune, genio civile and Sovrintendenza. Dont just think you can put in a pool and noone will notice - with Google earth come satellites and the comunes will find out. A pool can also change your valore catastale which will have an impact on your IMU and other taxes.
