Jure Sanguinis

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.

Jure Sanguinis

Postby angelicamarguerite » 10 Jun 2015, 02:26

Hi there!

I am wondering if under the laws regarding Italian Dual Citizenship if I would qualify. Through my mother's side:
1. my great-great grandfather (Francesco) was not naturalized in the US until 1918.
2. but my great grandmother (Margherita) was born in the US in 1912.
3. Margherita and Italian immigrant (Giuseppe) was naturalized by the time by grandmother was born.

I also read that before January 1, 1948 women could not pass on Italian citizenship. Is that true, and if it is, has it been challenged?

These two links can help you get started. You've got a 1948 case, where you can't apply for citizenship through the consulate (administratrative way) but by judicial means, by challenging the law, suing the Ministry of Interior.

Many forum members have been successful with Attorney Luigi Paiano. He's won over 200 cases already with a 100% rate of success. I'm currently pursuing my cittadinanza with him and highly recommend him.
