The benefits of being a dual citizen are immense as you have the rights from both countries, but everything boils down to the choice of countries. Here are some reasons why Italian second passports are trending in the US.

EU citizenship rights

Acquiring an Italian second passport opens you to EU citizenship rights, which means that you have the freedom to live and move across the territory of the Union. You can travel visa-free in the region, enjoy the right to vote, buy property, and work at jobs reserved only to Italians. You also get protection from the consular and diplomatic authorities of any EU Member State.

The proposal is to introduce a new principle into Italian law that would give a right to citizenship based on school attendance. It would apply to children who were born in Italy or moved there before the age of 12, and have completed more than five years of school.

The rationale for linking citizenship to school is that education is a naturalization process in itself. Such children typically do not differentiate themselves from their friends and it can be a surprise to them to discover they aren’t citizens.

School-based citizenship has been given the name “jus culturae”, or “cultural right” in Italy. It’s a new addition to the two traditional legal bases for citizenship: jus soli and jus sanguinis.
