My grandfather was born in Italy, and never became a naturalized Amercian citizen. I thought I could obtain Italian citizenship...but I just went on th consultant's website and read the following (below). I assume this means I have to do one of the following to obtain citizenship. Please let me know if you had to do this to apply. I don't recall seening these requirements when I did research a few years ago. I appreciate your input/help.

1. Declaration of intention by the applicant

If a foreign citizen descends from an Italian citizen by birth (up to second generation) he/she can obtain Italian citizenship if:

he/she serves in the Italian military services;

he/she works for the Italian Government, even abroad;

legally resides in Italy for at least two years after reaching legal age.

A foreign citizen who is born on Italian soil may obtain Italian citizenship if he/she legally resides in Italy, without interruption, from birth to legal age.

That list applies only to those who do not qualify jure sanguinis, and if your Italian grandfather never naturalized, this does not apply to you.
