2What are the requirements to become a citizen?

You can apply for Italian citizenship if you have Italian parents, or in some cases grandparents, if you’re born in Italy, or if you marry an Italian. Otherwise you might be eligible for citizenship through residency if you live in Italy for long enough.

Waiting time in this case depends on circumstance – from 4 years for people with Italian heritage, to 10 years, for those coming to Italy from outside of EU.
