If you are pursuing Italian citizenship through marriage, there is a relatively new requirement that you must have a minimum of a B1 Level Certificate for the Italian language. This is an intermediate level of understanding and speaking the language. Proof will be required along with testing. The thinking behind the requirement is that you should have basic linguistic skills if you are going to live there. Lo Schiavo Genealogica is launching a new service to assist clients in meeting that requirement! We will be offering online classes for individuals and groups to help you learn Italian. Having an understanding of the language will help with your transition into life in Italy and we are here to help you.  Please contact Melanie Holtz for all the details! Please use “Language Class” in the subject line.
