Helping you navigate the complex process of applying for Italian citizenship

Italian Citizenship Jure Sanguinis

If you were born in the United States or in another country which granted you its citizenship at birth “jure soli” (by law of the soil), you may claim Italian citizenship “jure sanguinis” (by law of the bloodline) by descent and be considered an Italian citizen if your ancestors were Italians at the time of your birth.

The Law Office of Ilaria Cacopardo PA can assist you in navigating the complex process of applying for Italian citizenship. This is a complicated field requiring professional advice. Attorney Cacopardo has acquired ample experience through her prior work with the Italian consulate in Miami for over ten years, and can provide expert assistance.

Applications for Italian citizenship must be presented at the Italian consular office having jurisdiction over the state where you reside. Alternatively, Italian law allows descendants of Italian citizens to establish residency in Italy, and subsequently apply for Italian citizenship there. To better assist with this latter option, Attorney Ilaria Cacopardo has a partnership with the law office of Italian attorney Silvia Ventura located in Padua, Italy.
