When we asked expats in Italy if foreigners are allowed to own property, they answered...

"Yes, foreigners are allowed to own property in Italy. Non-EU citizens must obtain a permit from the Italian Ministry of Interior before they can purchase property in Italy. EU citizens are allowed to purchase property in Italy without a permit. However, they must register the property with the Italian Land Registry and obtain a tax identification number. Additionally, foreign investors may purchase property through a company registered in Italy," remarked another expat in Italy.
