Italian Citizenship Consultation

Italian Citizenship by Descent or by Marriage – Are you eligible for dual citizenship?
Starting Monday, January 10, you can schedule private appointments at Casa Belvedere to determine the first steps of your journey to become an Italian citizen.

You can apply for recognition of your Italian citizenship Jure Sanguinis (by descent) or Jure Matrimonii (by marriage). During this first appointment, you will learn whether or not you are eligible to apply. You must bring photocopies of birth certificates (or at least the date and place of birth) of your parent, grandparent or great-grandparent who was an Italian citizen when their child was born. Also, bring a copy, or an approximate date, of their naturalization either in the United States or in another country.

On select Mondays, you can book a 30-minute appointment (you can book two slots if you feel you need more time) with Carla Megale Di Tommaso, who will review the process with you. The price for your first consultation is $25.

    A special Author Visit 

    “Hotel of the Siren” presented by author Antoinette Carone
    In-person event on Tuesday, Dec. 6 at 7 pm
    A limited number of books will be available for sale at this event – a great holiday gift! 

    “Hotel of the Siren” is a work of literary fiction set mostly in Naples, Italy. Although it is the story of lovers, Naples itself is also a protagonist. In Naples, reality differs from appearance, fate operates relentlessly, and expectations are overturned.

    The lovers’ story takes place sometime in the late 20th century but before cell phones and the internet became essential to daily life. Lucy, an artist’s wife, is unexpectedly widowed. At his funeral, Lucy watches a woman wearing a green scarf stand over his grave. While cleaning his studio, Lucy discovers an airline ticket to Naples, Italy. Her husband was planning to leave with his model, Mina. Lucy uses the ticket and goes to Naples instead.

    There, Lucy reverts to her true name, Lucia. She resides in Hotel of the Siren, occupying one floor of an 18th-century building. Here she begins an affair with Antonio. There are things Lucia does not know about him, however. One is that Antonio’s father is plotting to acquire this building from its owner. The second is that Mina and Antonio are relatives.

    In “Hotel of the Siren,” Naples is central to Lucia’s journey. The way of life and the history of this ancient city frame the narrative and elucidate the culture, revealing the city’s contrasts and contradictions.
