Find out if you have the right to acquire the European citizenship
Unlike almost all other European jurisdictions, Italian nationality is transmitted regardless of the number of generations that mediate between the emigrants and the current applicants.
The Citizenship Law of 1912, which granted Italian nationality ius sanguinis, established that women could have citizenship, but not pass it on to their children.
However, as of January 1st, 1948, the new Constitution allowed women to transmit it to children born after that date. The Italian Supreme Court on 2009 sustained that this provision is contrary to the right of gender equality so that also children born before 1948 to an Italian mother, can file a motion to appeal the “1948 Rule” and obtain, if they are eligible, Italian citizenship.
