I understand

...To undertake this [citizenship application, ed.] process, it is critical to have an experienced professional at your side and the Mazzeschi firm is certainly the premier firm of which I am aware. Our lawsuit was filed in April of 2015 and after the required hearings, our decision was received in February of 2017 and should be finalized in early June of 2017. Everyone I have worked with at the Mazzeschi firm has been absolutely professional, competent, communicative and very responsive. I would highly recommend them.

(Tom G., May 2017)


O caminho para a cidadania italiana não é fácil. Mesmo em casos onde a ascendência italiana é inquestionável, a burocracia e o tempo envolvidos podem ser desanimadores. Independentemente do caso, ter o apoio certo é fundamental. Desde o início, a equipe de Mazzeschi apresentou um nível de profissionalismo e dedicação raros na minha profissão. Fico feliz de informar que nosso caso teve um resultado positivo e muito mais rápido do que esperado. Mazzeschi disse que tivemos sorte. Eu digo que é fácil ter sorte quando você trabalha com profissionais dedicados e capazes.

(Joao S., August 2016)


Legal expertise, excellent communications and results. That is how I would begin to describe the experience I had with Mazzeschi.  The team assigned to my case made the complicated process very understandable and I knew I had the experts by my side the entire time.   The Mazzeschi team delivered.

(Sal Savatteri, Jr., Esq. - Savatteri Law Firm, P.C., August 2016)


If you don't live in Italy and have ever driven there, it is one of the most chaotic experiences you will ever go through.  Citizenship reacquisition is just like driving in Italy.  I was lost, receiving different information from different Comune workers, and wasting a lot of money. 
Mazzeschi was my GPS throughout the whole citizenship process.  Without their help I would have given up

(Mr. Maiello, August 2016)


Mazzeschi not only provided Andrew with the desired citizenship, it allowed him to feel Italian and to feel at home. You are the best! 

(Mr. Butterworth, August 2016)


We assist clients with Italian citizenship acquisition and can offer complete assistance including housing, language courses and completion of the citizenship application. 
The most important part of the process is the initial assessment to determine whether or not you are entitled to Italian citizenship.

Once this is completed, the next important step is obtaining the necessary documentation to successfully file the application.

We can assist with document procurement, translation and legalization of necessary documents. 

If your citizenship application was denied because you were born to an Italian mother before 1948, we can assist you in filing a law suit against these decisions. In fact, our firm obtained favourable judgements from the Court of Rome, which granted Italian citizenship to individuals born to an Italian mother before 1948. Before this date, the Italian law allowed men only to transfer Italian citizenship to their children. According to the Supreme Court, this provision is contrary to the Constitutional principles and to the principle of equality between men and women. Despite this ruling, Consulates and Public offices continue rejecting applications, thus making Court motions the only way to obtain citizenship (


For complete assistance, we are pleased to offer our assistance in locating adequate housing in beautiful Tuscany with special language courses and fast-track issuance of your citizenship recognition. 

We also offer a wide range of complementary services such as certificates translation and legalization, tax code (Codice Fiscale) and national health card (Tessera Sanitaria) obtainment, home certificates and many more. To find out our services, visit our section Immigration Services or Contact us to submit your questions.

If you think you may qualify for Italian citizenship, please send your query to and follow the instructions to initiate your case. Please be advised that in some cases we may require the payment of a retainer fee for the initial assessment, which will be deducted from the total amount if our firm is appointed for the case representation.
