Helpful links


The following websites have been very useful during this process. I’ll be updating this list as I go along.

Official offices for documents:
Other official websites for general info:
General info and forums:
  • Melting Pot (in Italian) – This website has a wealth of advice for non-EU citizens living in Milan, including some information in English. It has been useful in the past and it’s where I got my initial info about applying for citizenship.
  • Italian Citizenship Forum – A message board with lots of people applying for Italian citizenship for various reasons who are contributors. It’s a good place to find information.

    I started the process (again) today, but with a little out of date information so after the 3 hour wait at the Prefectura I was told I need the penal information. I am still stumped on the fingerprinting. The FBI site for the criminal background check says it is required, but only list places in the US to have it done. The send to the State Dept Authenitcation Office for the apostille. Then pay for the official translation again…Any luck finding a place to do your fingerprints? I am in Rome.

    Hi, I’m about to start dual citizenship procedures as well. But I’m afraid I have the big problem you mentioned somewhere on this blog of having only my middle initial on my passport… and having used that for all my official documents in Italy. Could you kindly inform me about what I should do from here?? Thank you so much!

      Hi! I would definitely start with changing your passport (like I did) so that it matches your birth certificate. You can go to the badges page of this blog for a list of all the steps to take (and see when I completed each step). On the Prefettura of Milan website, they are pretty clear that your name needs to match perfectly on all your documents (or at least it was when I was doing my application). Let me know if you have any other questions and… in bocca al lupo!

I'd love to hear what you think
