To be, or not to be, an Italian Citizen!

I just came back from the Italian Consulate in Chicago, where my brother, sister, and I applied to become  Italian Citizens. The reason we had this opportunity is a  little complicated to try to explain here. But it has to do with my Great Grandparents not considered Italian Citizens around World War One. Their culture was Italian. Their language was Italian. But they were considered to be in part of Austria, and therefore, Austrian Subjects. Recently, to benefit their descendants, the Italian government has offered us the ability to become Italian citizens, along with our children, and their future descendants. It will take three months to three years for the process to be complete. I am very honored to be a part of this opportunity!

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog. An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.
