Italian Citizenship through Grand Parent

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.

Italian laws for citizenship appear to be different for North and South America. Consequently there may be unique situations for OZX. I would strongly suggest that you contact the Italian embassy or consulate nearest your home for instructions in filing for citizernship..Perhaps going in person and making an inquiry at such a place,.if convenient ,may be helpful as well.

There is no one I know who has had any experience with OZ citizens requesting Italian citizenship (EU citizenship). What seems to be the problem when contacting the Italian embassy in Canberra can give you all the answers ??? Peter

You did not explain sufficiently but know you have. There is a gentlmen who is a USC and who acquired Italian citizenship. He has given permission to contact him as Tuscany724@yahoo.com and his name is J.Raffa. Lots of luck. Peter
