Tiziano Ferro stated, “Italian law does not currently allow adoption by gay couples and the children of homosexual couples are legally linked only to the biological father or mother.” I have not yet provided children with an Italian passport even if they are allowed to it.
The singer,Tiziano Ferro, launching his new single “La vita Splendida“, told in an interview with Rolling Stones about his experience as a parent of Margherita and Andres, born last year.”
Today”, he said, speaking of the limits that our country imposes on homosexual couples, “if I want to bring my children into Italy, I know that they would be entitled to half the parental supervision, even if there are two people who can take care of They”.
“In 2019, I started a long journey to have Margherita and Andres,” said the singer, who completed his new album, Il mondo nostra, on 11 November.
Ferro has lived in the United States with her husband, Victor Allen, for several years now and last February, he announced on Instagram that he had become a dad.
“Two phone calls made me the happiest man in the world,” he wrote, posting a photo with Allen and their two children, “the first a few months ago: a girl. The moment a few weeks later: this moment a child”.
“It was certainly not a walk in the park,” he told the Rolling Stones now, “I can’t tell you which way, but the truth is that any road is tiring.”
Tiziano Ferro raised the issue of the lack of rights for LGBTQIA + families in Italy
In the United States, however, LGBTQIA + families have more rights than Italy.
In fact, Italian law does not currently allow adoption by gay couples and the children of homosexual couples are legally linked only to the biological father or mother.
This creates numerous problems, as well as a legislative vacuum that penalizes, first and foremost, minors.
” If they are ill”, explained Tiziano Ferro, “only I can go to the emergency room because my husband Victor Allen is not on the passport, which is an aberrant thing”.
“Further consenting or not, morals, a feeling of guilt built at the table”, ended Tiziano Ferro, ” I have always considered that my rights do not take anything out from those of others. Then when this thing takes a face, which is that of your children, that’s when it hurts you. I have not yet provided them with an Italian passport even if they are allowed to it.”
