Judicial Citizenship for those born before 1948

Post by emiroirausquin » 01 Aug 2006, 03:19

Greetings from Venezuela

Hey guys,

I have had some people trying to find a loophole within the 1/1/1948 citizenship law - asking if I have any info. about obtaining Citizenship through starting a judiciary procedure in Italy. I have found info stating that there were two decisions/ verdicts favoring plaintiffs in Torino and Firenze Tribunale granting Italian Citizenship to descendants of Italian mothers born before 1/11948.

Those veredicts were “della Cassazione Civile di Roma, I -Sección sentencia 10.07.1996 n 6297 Tribunale di Torino, sentenza 12 aprile 1999 - Deve essere considerato cittadino italiano colui che è nato da madre italiana anteriormente al 1° gennaio 1948.

Sentenza della Corte Costituzionale n°30 del 28 gennaio 1983
1) dichiara inammissibili le questioni di legittimità costituzionale dell’art. 1, n. 2, della legge 13 giugno 1912, n. 555, e dell’art. 20 delle disposizioni preliminari al Codice civile,. sollevate in riferimento agli artt. 2 e 3 della Costituzione dal Tribunale per i minorenni di Firenze;
2) dichiara l’illegittimità costituzionale:
a) dell’art. 1, n. 3. della legge 13 giugno 1912, n. 555, nella parte in cui non prevede che sia cittadino per nascita anche il figlio di madre cittadina;
b) dell’art. 2, comma 2, della legge predetta;
3) dichiara â€â€

Someone asked this question on another forum, and the response he received was that these decisions were ultimately overturned. I don't, however, know this through my personal research.

Italy has been inundated with applications from people eligible for citizenship, so it is unlikely that the law will be changed retroactively to encourage even more applicants. My own belief is that if the immigration laws do change, they will become more, not less, restrictive.
