Talk: Paths to Italian citizenship (online, members only)

  • 20 May 2021
  • 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
  • Online, Zoom


Registration is closed

Talk: This presentation explains the different ways to acquire Italian Citizenship: as a result of Italian ancestors (Juri Sanguinis) or by adoption, parent’s naturalization (only for minors), marriage (or civil partnership), residency, disputing the case in Court (1948 case). Every situation is different, there are unique rules that apply and distinct angles to investigate before assessing your eligibility. The process may take long but is rewarding!

The presenters will give you the tools to embark on the process by yourself; or you can contact them directly for an estimate based on your specific needs. The presenters are from the Italian Institute in Denver, a private and independent company that provides Italy-related professional services at a charge: http://www.italianinstitute.com/.
