It is nice to get a reply. I am in the process of getting citzenship does not seem to daunting because I am prepared for it to be daunting and frustrating. We already have our codice fisicale cards, my wife is a local . Our biggest difficulty is the architect we want windows and an open plan, he wants lots of rooms. Can you tell me about car insurance basic liability seem very expensive. We hope to visit in the winter to experience their version of cold and snow. 25 degrees and 4 inches of snow I can hardly wait. Our dog choice in Italy is whatever the Romans abandon when they visit in the summer and the dog decides to adopt us. Every summer we usually have one dog that hangs around with us. Cats are very limited in our area. All of my wifes zias and zios are gone but 3 cousins and their kids and grandkids are part of our life. I have no family but marriage makes these people my family wonderful for an only child. ciao andy jensen

Yes, the Italian version of family is quite close-knit. Once you get used to it, it's great. I don't know anything about car insurance, good luck on finding a affordable option.

Thanks so much for contacting us back concerning dual citizenship for the U.S and Italy.

My wife and I currently live in Florida and when I recently retired in December our goal was to always spend six months in Italy and six months back here in the states. We have two daughters only and both are going to college in Florida. We are planning on going to Italy for three months this summer to really look around in Italy and really look around in the areas all of our grandparents were from. Then at that time we will really plan our attack on where we would want to live there.

We are American/Italians meaning all of our grandparents were born in Italy. My wife's grandparents are from Calabria. My mom's parents were fom Calabria and my dad's parents were from Abruzzo. My mother-in-law is the only one still living. We don't speak any Italian at this point of time.

My mother was the youngest out of 18 children and my father was second to the youngest out of 11 children. I know 50 percent of my family lived or still lives in Italy. I am the youngest out of all the family members and never met any of my relatives from Italy and don't know where any of them live or how to contact them. Most all my Aunt's,Uncle's and Cousins are all deceased. I been to Italy one time and really loved it there.

My problem is I don't know my granparents spelling of there actual names and have not been able to track down there birth certificates from any of my family members.

How did you get Dual citizenship and where did you go to get it? What information did you have to give to get your dual citizenship. Were you born in the U.S? How long did it take you to get your dual citizenship for here and Italy?

We know we can go to Italy for three months on our U.S Passports and I believe we can get a extended visa to stay there longer. We don't even know at this point of time how to get a extended visa.

Where do you live here in the U.S? I wish we could all meet up sometime depending on where you all live to talk about relocating to Italy.

If you don't mind answering all our questions if you can and could help us in anyway getting information to us or you advising us on everything we have asked you,we would really appreciate you contacting uis again.


Thanks

Michael and Palma

Hi,
living in Canada and after too many cold snowy winters my body is screaming for a more milder sunnier climate. I have been to northern Italy a few times but wish to experience the south. So Naples or perhaps a few months on the island of Capri would be nice to produce some paintings while experiencing the wonderful sunlight there. What I'm looking for is a good web site that explains what daily life is like on Capri for the people who live there - sadly I do not speak Italian so hard to find a blog in English. Any leads appreciated.

My name is Vaughan. I was paratroooper/Paracadutista stationed in Vicenzia at Caserma Paulo Ederle and in that time discovered some very valuable life lessons about kitchen, family and quality of life. Also I discovered the rich deep history and magic of the Veneto. I am very notalgic and am looking forward to returning for an extended vaction at some point in the future.

Thanks so much for contacting us back and letting us know about a long term visa. My wife and I are retired and don't have to work anymore and also have enough retirement money to live on. When are you folks planning on relocating to Italy or are you already there? Hope to hear from you again.


Take Care

Hi, My name is john Agostini. I am working on obtaining dual citizenship for my family and having difficulty getting birth and marriage documents from my Grandfather's home town of Ascoli Piceno in Le Marche. I am doing this to allow my children the opportunity someday to study or work in Italy or anywhere in EU along with making travel much simpler. Any help you can give me would be great.
