My application has been processed – in other words, I am officially recognized as an Italian citizen!!!
This actually happened 2 weeks ago (I was out of the country, so no blog updating for me). I awoke one morning to this very straight to the point, unceremonious message from the consulate:
I actually had to read this twice to make sure I understood it correctly. Something this big couldn’t possibly be expressed so tersely, and in such a flat tone….could it?! (short answer: yes)
This was quite fast – I submitted my last documents on Feb 1, so the processing took 3.5 months. They estimated 8-12 months. Not bad!
