According to Italian Law 91 of February 5, 1992, Italian citizenship is conferred by bloodline. In other words, the descendant of an Italian citizen is already an Italian citizen. The descendant need only have his/her Italian citizenship recognized by the Italian government. An individual seeking to have his/her Italian citizenship recognized need only to produce evidence that everyone in his/her direct line of ascendants uninterruptedly maintained their Italian citizenship.
For information regarding Italian citizenship, visit the Embassy of Italy’s website for the most up to date information about ways to obtain citizenship, eligibility rules, documentation required, and to download an application form.
