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.
