On March 19, Italy commemorates a joyful holiday dedicated to St. Joseph, San Giuseppe, patron saint of family life, hand-labor, and carpenters. It is in Italy that St. Joseph's day is also known as Father's Day. This Saint is one of the least nominated by the Christian orthodoxy: compared to Saint Francis', Saint Joseph's life is certainly less known. Still Saint Joseph symbolizes the father, a figure that means so much in our life.

This is a GREAT question, after all, who doesn’t want to be fluent in the most beautiful language in the world spoken by Dante, Leopardi, Macchiavelli and many other classics?

If you are applying for Italian Dual Citizenship through the "female" line, you may fall in the category of those born to an Italian female ancestor before 1948. For example: your mother's father was born in Italy; he did not become a naturalized US citizen before her birth which makes you eligible, but because you were born before 1948, you do not qualify. If you fall in this category, there is a way to overcome this and successfully apply.

Being Italian has always been something I’ve identified with growing up. There would always be get togethers with our big Italian family and stories shared about Italy and what is was like there. In June 2009, my parents, brother and I went to Italy and it was the trip of a lifetime; we learned so much more about our culture and our family. It was then that I knew this place was special and I wanted to be a part of it in some way. For as long as I can remember, my father talked about becoming an Italian citizen.

We often receive this question: “Will the Italian Consulate return the original documents to me?” The answer is “they do not”, in fact all Consulates will keep your original documents in your permanent file.

Who says Baseball and Softball are not popular in Italy? Although the “Soccer” hegemony is still going strong, the game of Baseball is not new to Italians, in fact it was documented already in the late 1800s (as Base-ball) when the port city of Livorno hosted a match between the Navy crew of the USS Lancaster and of the ship Guinnebaug. Bring the clock forward 100+ years and in 2006 Team Italy was one of the nations invited to compete in the WBC.

If you are just getting started with your Italian Dual Citizenship, assuming you found out that you qualify, one of the main questions you should ask is: HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

We get this question all the time and there are several answers to that. First, you need to determine whether you have the time (and patience) to gather all the required documents yourself, OR, whether you would like to outsource the entire process to a company that specializes in Italian Dual Citizenship. The fees are obviously different.
