In Italy, there are 101 State Archives (Archivi di Stato), one in the capital of each province. In addition to state documents from the early medieval period to the present, the State Archives also hold notarial archives older than 100 years and the archives of suppressed ecclesiastical bodies or religious corporations whose property was confiscated by the state. State Archives may also accept the custody of private archives (belonging to individuals, families, firms, associations etc.) and the records of public bodies.

The archival heritage is constantly growing and the material hold in the Italian State Archives as a whole occupies over 1,500 km (about 1,000 miles) in linear measurement, including 1.5 million parchments.

The State Archives are branches of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism.
