Please note that you should not obtain documents and certificates more than six months prior to wedding date or they will expire.
You must obtain an Affidavit, stating that there is No Impediment to your marriage. You can do this either in Canada or at the Canadian Consulate in Milan or the canadian Embassy in Rome. Then present this document to the Registry Office in the city where the wedding will take place.
In order to obtain this declaration you will need the following:

A woman whose previous marriage was terminated within the last 300 days must obtain a waiver from the Court. This is issued on presentation of medical evidence that she is not pregnant Upon your arrival in Italy.
If you have not received the Declaration (Nulla Osta) from a Canadian authority abroad, you will need to make the necessary arrangements here in Italy. The declaration issued by the Embassy or Canadian consulate must be authenticated at the Prefecture - Legalization office.
Once the declaration has been obtained and legalized, it is presented to the Marriage office where the wedding will take place.
