Dear Italian Vice-Consul in Sarnia, I am an Italian Citizen by birth. I’ve been married to a Brazilian citizen (Miriam Akemi Manabe Capretz) since 04/May/1985. My spouse is a full-professor of software engineering and Associate Dean Research at Western University in London/ON. As she conducts research with collaborators in several universities in Europe, she would like to apply for Italian citizenship, which will allow her to stay over 3 months in countries within the European community. May I kindly ask you for a meeting, so that we could understand the process for my spouse to apply for Italian Citizenship by marriage? Otherwise, if you give me a telephone number, I would be glad to talk to you and receive guidance on that naturalization process. I am looking forward to your reply.
