Acquiring Citizenship Jure Sanguinis
I'm intending to apply for Italian Citizenship (dual citizenship with UK) via my mother who was born there. She married a British soldier and has lived in UK since 1947. The Italian consulate has not been helpful but has suggested that my mother lost her citizenship when she married and needs to reacquire it first (something she cannot do due to her Alzheimer's). This would have been news to her as she always believed she had dual citizenship. I cannot obtain further clarification from the consulate (without visiting it).
Does anyone know whether it is correct that I cannot obtain citizenship jure sanguinis for this reason? If so could I apply via my Italian grandparents (for whom I would need to find relevant documentation)?
As ever, thank you for your help
