    Hi, I’m trying to find out more about my family history, my father was born in Tramonti, Italy circa 1926 (deceased), he had a brother named Luigi (also deceased). I believe his mother’s maiden name was Apicella. I know very little about my roots and family there as he emigrated to Dublin, Ireland (for work, where he met my mother) then to the US (New York City) shortly after WWII.

    Father’s Name: Giuseppe Amarante
    year of birth 1926, I believe September

    Brother Luigi Amarante

    Do I have rights to Italian citizenship ? I am already a citizen of the US and Ireland (I was born there).
