Castiglione della Pescaia (Tuscany)

Castiglione della Pescaia is an ancient seaside town in the province of Grosseto, in Tuscany, central Italy. The modern city grew around a medieval fortress and a large fishery, from which it acquired its designation. Today Castiglione is a tourist destination thanks to its beaches, its fortress and the natural reserve Diaccia Botrona, a swampy humid environment whose wildlife include flamingoes, mallards and ducks. In 2014 it ranked 4th among the most visited destinations in Tuscany, with approximately 1.3 million tourist arrivals, only preceded by Florence, Pisa and Montecatini Terme. In 2015 Castiglione's sea was nominated as Italy's best sea by the national non-governmental environmentalist organization Legambiente.

Our situation: I am a dual citizen (Italy/US) with legal residence in my comune. My wife (US citizenship only) now lives here. We want to apply for the carta di soggiorno for family members of EU citizens.

Buongiorno 

My husband and I own a home in Montepulciano. It has been vacant now for 1.5 years due to Covid.  We have both been vaccinated.  When can we return? We are from Arizona, USA.
