Law/Patents - Law (general) / writ of summons
Italian term or phrase: retroesteso
writ of summons

Relata di notifica - Richiesto come in atto, Io sottoscritt Ufficiale Giudiziario all'Ufficio Unico Notifiche presso la Corte d'Appello di brescia ho notificato copia conforme del retroesteso a XXX

Is this refering to a signature of certification on the back of the certified copy? Or something entirely different?
