In the Lazio region, the mushroom picking licence (tesserino regionale di autorizzazione alla raccolta) is issued to people over the age of 14 who have attended a course. The course is open to residents (it is held in Italian only).
Following a law of 29 April 2006, people over the age of 65 are now exempt from paying for a licence.
Licences must be renewed annually (there is a fee) and payment can be made directly into the account:
