Last December, Italy introduced a language requirements for people seeking Italian citizenship through marriage.
This has stirred an intense debate on whether knowing the language should be a requirement to get citizenship or not.
Nationality and citizenship are two separate things, but we tend to mix the two. Albeit I understand the distinction in terms of law, I still believe citizenship is not just having one more passport.
There is a big contraction in Italian law as we have potentially 80 million Italian-descendants who could be eligible for citizenship by blood, but at the same time there are boys and girls raised in Italy to foreign parents who cannot get the Italian citizenship until their turn 18 years old.
I suppose other countries are in the same situation. What is it and what do you think? Are you happy with your native country's law on citizenship?
