Many countries allow for dual citizenship with the United States, and every government has its own set of immigration policies and citizenship laws, which in turn shape the eligibility requirements and the conditions one must meet in order to apply for dual citizenship. Notably, the Italian government’s requirements to apply for Italian citizenship jure sanguinis (by descent) are less strict compared to other countries, which make Italian citizenship one of the easiest citizenships to acquire in Europe. Most importantly, unlike other countries, there are no generational limits that will prevent you from applying for Italian citizenship by right of blood. In other words, it does not matter if you apply through your most recent ancestor or through your most distant ancestor since there is no limit in the number of generations one can go back.
