@maique Yeah. The first 4 years were spent collecting legal documents, historic records, apostilles, translations, forms, etc.

Once I had a complete citizenship application (a 4-inch thick binder), I spent 4 months trying to get an appointment through their online system because they only release 2 per day and people compete for them at midnight Rome time every night when they’re released.

Once you’re successful at getting an appointment, it’s always for a date 2 years out. Mine was at the Italian Consulate in San Francisco, I hear it’s 5 years in Los Angeles.

Then it took 7 months for my request to be approved and another 6 month wait for a passport appointment.
