This article analyses the implementation in Italy of the children’s right to be heard in judicial and administrative proceedings and investigates children’s point of view about this right. The article is organized in two sections. In the first I present an overview of Italian law on children’s hearing in legal proceedings in the civil law context, and the opinion of legal professionals about child’s hearing. In the second I present some findings of a research aiming at identifying children’s perceptions and opinions on the right to be listened to if their parents decide to separate.
