Questions Asked

Bancoposta has been recommended to me.  I am a dual citizen and will be spending about 5 months working in Italy.  How do I go about setting up a bank account?  Is this a good choice?  Trying out living in Italy to make "sure".

Many times the same name was then given to another child.  Have you checked the records for a few years before and after the certificate that you found?  Did you use the site antenati to find the one you have?  I found many times in my family tree that the names were given to another child after the death (at birth or even after a few years).

It is my understanding that the new law does not apply here because the idea is that you. are asking for recognition of citizenship.  However, for a spouse it does apply since they are applying for citizenship which is different than recognition.  The test has been simplified from the regular B1 test.

Your sons will probably need to either be a member of an international club or pur have the runcard. In addition they will need either a sports physical by an Italian physician or your physician depending on the level of Milan marathon. I've run Rome marathon and a dozen other half marathons and all require these things.

Hi! Six of my 8 great grandparents came from Italy. I have been visiting towns and meeting family the past 5 years and still have a few comune to visit. I have met my grandfather's first cousin (she's 90) and we visited the nearby town where my great grandfather was born and saw the house. Another cousin on the same side is an Italian astronaut.  They are originally from Gallese but now live in Vasanello. We have also visited the mountain town of Greci in southern Italy where my great grandmother was born. We have seen the church records dating back to 1610 when two dozen Albanian families settled there. I have roots back to most of those families. We met distant cousins, ate great food, visited houses and the cemetery. The Gallese family ( thru which I am recognized as an Italian citizen) helped me celebrate my birthday a few years ago and we have met on several other occasions.  I now speak Italian and have been in Italy since January.  I have yet to visit Oppido Mamertina in Reggio Calabria or Bellosguardo in southern Italy. More research wS done in Pescantina near Verona. Lots of wandering around cemeteries!  I love the connections and feel like I belong.

Thank you for the information.  I will read what you have recommended.  In 1993 Italy passed a law permitting recognition for dual citizen purposes "by blood" those of Italian descent.  That is how I have dual citizenship.
