Monte Argentario (Tuscany)

Monte Argentario is a comune and a peninsula belonging to the Province of Grosseto, in the Italian region Tuscany. The peninsula is connected with the mainland by three spits of land which form two lagoons, the Laguna di Ponente on the west side and the Laguna di Levante on the east side of the middle dam. The two main villages on Monte Argentario are Porto Santo Stefano, chief town, facing north, and Porto Ercole facing south. The panoramic road 'Strada Panoramica' starts in Porto Santo Stefano allowing splendid views of the coast and the Tuscan Archipelago. Monte Argentario borders the comune of Orbetello, which is located on the middle dam between the two lagoons.

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.
