We offer the opportunity to visit the place of origin of the students' families together with a teacher (to be quoted apart), as well as the possibility to start and assist with the procedures for requesting the Italian citizenship (to be quoted apart).To take part in the course it is necessary to have Italian origins, proven by a document attesting the Italian citizenship of the student or the parents / ancestors.
