My Journey to Italian Citizenship

Becoming an Italian citizen is a dream I have had. It’s a lot of work, but well worth the long process involved.

This photo shows the famous Vittorio Emmanuele II Monument in the heart of Rome. There are two Italian flags on each side of the monument and a figure on a horse at the center. There are Roman columns at the front of the building and classical Roman architecture along with embedded bas relief on the building.

I attended a seminar in San Jose, California about five years ago curious to learn more about becoming an Italian citizen. A gentleman gave a talk at a nearby Italian Heritage Center on dual-citizenship through Jure Sanguinis.
