Before an Italian judge, it has to be proven that the applicants are direct descendants of an Italian citizen, and that the right to pass the citizenship to the next generations was not lost. To this end, the births, and if applicable the marriages and death certificates of the people in the direct bloodline must be verified with appropriate documentation demonstrating a direct relationship. In addition, a document stating that the first Italian direct descendant or emigrant did not renounce their right to Italian citizenship or acquire foreign citizenship must be provided. Let us know about your family tree by completing our Genealogical Questionnaire and we will provide you with a list of the documents required for your specific case.
