Introduction

Since 1992 Italy allows the possibility to hold more than one citizenship and also offers the opportunity to acquire or regain the Italian citizenship also in cases when it was lost due to the legal effects of previous rules and regulations. Also, there are ways to earn Italian citizenship even if your ascendant (parent, grandparent, great-grandparent) naturalized before the birth of the next descendant in your line of kin.

For example, you might be entitled to Italian Citizenship if you:

– are a descendant of an Italian citizen;

– are married to an Italian citizen;

– have been a resident of Italy;

– were born in Italy;

– had the Italian citizenship and lost it.

We would be glad to assist you. We have flexible terms of business and fee structures.

You can check below our terms of business, activities included in our Legal Service Packages and how to get started.

We suggest that you book a phone consultation with us so that we can review your case circumstances and your goals and advise you accordingly.

What Our Clients Say

F.C., Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA (from Google reviews)

22 May 2019 – Studio Legale Metta is wonderful!!! They help people in the States with legal matters in other countries. They have an excellent understanding of how things are done in the US and in Europe that helped guide us in the right direction. They understood that the legal action we were forced to take was more an affair of the heart then of finances and were very understanding. They helped us stay calm and do the right thing even though we were emotionally upset. Our case was in Italy. Everyone we spoke with could switch between English and Italian seamlessly to give us a better idea of what was taking place. We worked with many people in their office and everyone was of the same accord. Service and treat the client honorably and with respect. Nick, Antonio and office staff thank you again for your excellent service and commitment to your clients. We highly recommend Studio Legale Metta!!!
