No.

The reason you don't read anything about people having gone this route is because it is so darned hard to make it work.

You have to reside *legally* in Italy for the required amount of time. Unless you can obtain a work visa (incredibly difficult, unless you are like, literally, a rocket scientist or something) or are super wealthy, there is pretty much no way to do it.

You'd have a better chance of somehow proving your grandmother lied on her application for US citizenship, thus voiding her naturalization.

Hmmm...

I wonder if anyone has ever tried going that route...
