Re: Cerco parenti americani NIGRO

There is a small town named Accadia between Benevento and Foggia. There were/are many Nigro's from there including my grandparents who emigrated from there in the early 1900's

Re: Italy and Gay Marriage

Noel I. Garde, in his gossipy 1964 book Jonathan to Gide: The Homosexual In History, included John XII (r. 955-964), Benedict IX (r. 1033-1045; 1047-1048), John XXII (r. 1316-34), Paul II (r. 1464-1471), Sixtus IV (r. 1471-1484), Alexander VI (r. 1492-1503), Julius II (r. 1503-1513) and Leo X (r. 1...

You would probably want to have your marriage certificate, translated, apostille, and authenticated by the NY Consulate in case you want to proceed with your application outside of the NY Consulate's jurisdiction

Re: I Just Beat the 1948 Rule

Nothing printed in the English language, from household instruction manuals to recipes to product labels.
Really? EU regulations require it ... that EU languages are covered ... take a look at a chocolate bar!

Re: Passport + AIRE process in NYC

Hi and Congratulations! I had a similar situation this past December :-) When you went for your interview, you were probably given a form to fill out before meeting with the Consular. That would have been the AIRE form. Take a look at your recognition letter, it probably mentions you've been added t...

Re: health cover in Europe

As an Italian citizen, you can move to any country you choose in the EU but you would have to utilize that country's own healthcare system and Italy would not be involved at all.
