Italian Citizenship: Bravo Attilio!

Italian and Finnish passports are rated the fourth most powerful in the world because they provide visa-free or visa-on-arrival access to 188 countries. They rank ahead of the US, the UK and all other European Union countries except Germany.

According to attorney Lara Olivetti, who spoke at our 2019 spring gathering at Terun Pizzeria, a special parliamentarian commission has been set up to discuss limiting the right of citizenship by descent. Some want to restrict it to first generation children born abroad and only spouses living in Italy. Therefore, if you are interested in obtaining your Italian citizenship, you may want to act soon. On that note, board member Attilio Mussi recently obtained his Italian passport. Congratulations Attilio!
