My error was (a) the above and (b) not realizing that I could simply have gone to the financial institution holding my half million and having them disburse an >amount< on a monthly basis. Nowhere is the >amount< documented but tribal drumbeats suggest that proving sustainable income of well over 30,000 Euros per annum is the ticket. Somewhere there is a list telling you this, that you will need previously acquired housing, previously acquired health insurance, etc. but I can't find it.

Looking at your consulate's website should provide a wealth of information. For example, from Miami FL USA:

Can someone clarify this?

Thanks!
My wife and I just accomplished this. In the US we needed to gather a lot of information (financial mostly), have a background check with FBI here, and then present ourselves in person to the local consulate. The Consul checked over our paperwork to make sure everything was there, then he took our passports and sent them to the main US consulate. Three weeks later we got our passports back in the mail (though others have told us it can take months). ONLY THEN did we enter Italy and fill out paperwork at the post office (within 90 days of receiving the visas) . At the post office we received a date months later to appear at the questura to be fingerprinted and apply for our permit to live in Italy.

If you try to do this without the preliminary paperwork in the states, they will just send you home. You must receive you Elective Residenza Visa BEFORE you enter the country.

Hope that helps. It may be different for Canada, but I would guess it is similar at least.

Good Luck.
