As we previously described here, Do You have an Italian Parent born from female descendant before 1948? Pay attention.
Under the 1912 Italian Citizenship law, only men were able to transfer Italian citizenship to their children (born in Italy or abroad) on the condition that, at the time of their children’s birth, they were Italian citizens.
Italian-born women and women born abroad who held Italian citizenship, instead, were discriminated against, and under the 1912 Italian law, they were NOT able to transfer Italian Citizenship to their children.
Only after the promulgation of the Italian constitution, which stated that men and women have equal rights, were Italian women able to transmit Italian citizenship to their sons and daughters, but only to those children born after January 1st 1948.
Consequently, Italian consulates deny all Italian Citizenship Ancestry applications in which the applicant is using an Italian-born female ancestor or female ancestor born abroad, whose child was born prior to 1948.
Until September, 5th 2018, Government had to process all application in 730 days.
Now, as statued by the new Immigration Decree (Decreto Sicurezza), the term is extended up to 4 years, from the day of the application.
