interesting paper on italian citizenship policy

Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

Thank you for posting the article--very informative. However, most of the discussion addresses citizenship law as it applies to those who immigrate to Italy without an Italian ancestor.

I did read the section on the 10-year minimum stay for benefits, but as far as I know, all Italian citizens who reside in Italy are eligible for health care as soon as they register as Italian residents.

I think this refers to what we in the US call the Social Security benefit system. More specifically, it may refer to Italy's policy of confering upon retirement-age individuals a minimum poverty-level social pension regardless of whether that person ever worked or contributed tax money into the system.

At age 65, to be exact. Mostly unmarried women draw this sort of pension in Italy.
