Pistoia (Tuscany)

Pistoia is a city in the Italian region of Tuscany, the capital of a province of the same name. It is a typical Italian medieval city, and it attracts many tourists, especially in the summer. Pistoia presents a well-preserved and charming medieval city inside the old walls. The large Piazza del Duomo, dominated by the cathedral, is lined with other medieval buildings, such as the Palazzo del Comune and the Palazzo del Podestà: it is the setting (in July) of the Giostra dell'Orso ("Bear Joust"), when the best horsemen of the city's traditional quarters tilt with lances at a target held up by a dummy shaped like a bear.

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.
