Italian Citizenship Certificate

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 Citizenship Certificate

Post by michaud »

Hello
I'm working at obtaining my Italian citizenship for me and my children. I have been to the Consulate to apply and have been told I'm short one document. :cry:
My grandfather was born in Celano Aquila i 1893. He moved to Canada in 1912 and naturalized in 1949. I have a copy of his Italian birth certificate which has two dates, one written 1956 on the front and one stamped on the back April 25 1963. My grandfathers name is Simplicio Villa.
I have been by the Consulate that I need a copy of his Italian Citizenship Certificate from the commune he was from (Celano Aquila). Address? Anything??
How do I get this???? Please help as I am sooooo close to fulfilling my dream!!
Thanks in advance.

You write to the town directly asking for the certificate in 'modello plurilngue per motivo cittadinanza'. The certificates you have are only valid 6 months, that's why you have to get a current one.
Good luck.

The Toronto Consulate has a form on their website to send to the town to help you request the correct certificate.

I am assuming that you are applying through a consulate in Canada, the consulates in the US do not require this "citizenship certificate". Good luck!
