I finally have my beautiful Italian passport in my hands! I had my appointment in October 2011 at the Boston Consulate. By December I had been notified by my comune that I had been added to the AIRE and the Boston Consulate then requested a nulla osta from the Questura della provincia di Foggia. Mid January I had been cleared by the questura. Last week I went into the Consulate to have my fingerprints taken etc for the passport. And this morning I picked up my passport : ) also today I received an email with my voter card attached from the comune. What a journey...I wish all those who are seeking Italian citizenship success and especially to those in Boston we really are blessed with our lovely Consulate! tanti cari saluti da Boston!
