If you can demonstrate residence elsewhere then you can apply at another consulate.

If there is an appointment cancellation sometimes a consulate will let you move into an earlier appointment slot.

You can hire a qualified attorney in Italy to present your citizenship recognition case in Italian court. That process does not proceed much faster, but it would be a bit faster than two years, assuming your documentation is well in order. It would cost at least a few thousand euro to pursue a court case.

You can also apply in Italy if you move there. You can do that on your own if you really know what you're doing or again you can hire a "fixer" (such as a qualified attorney, though it doesn't have to be) who sets up everything in a friendly city that is known to process the paperwork quickly. The fixer also can arrange appropriate residential accommodation and often act as an interpreter. This too costs quite a bit of money, and you aren't working during this time so you also have the income loss.

What's the rush? Would your life be tangibly, materially different if your citizenship were recognized within 6 months instead of within 26? If there is no rush, stick to Plan A. If there is a rush -- you're a professional football player, you have an offer to play for pay in Italy, and your football career is finite, for example -- then explore the Plan Bs.

Thanks for that - I thought that may be the case...

The timing considerationis that I'd be keen to relocate to either the UK or France with my wife and children sooner than the 2+ year process which would be required via this method.

It doesn't ruin this plan but will affect our ability to undertake cross-border travel during our stay.

Once again I appreciate your advice!

Three years on and I thought that I should at least post back here and let you know the outcome!

I gathered all of the necessary documentation (through the corresponding Comune and local Australian authorities) and was able to prove eligibility.

It took two years and a couple of thousand dollars in retrieval costs for documents, translations and apostilles however we have all now had our citizenship recognised and in posession of our Italian passports.

Thanks to all who helped!
