Citizenship for immigrants’ children? Or not?

Something is changing in Italy, finally. Up to now, Italian citizenship has been given based on the “ius sanguinis” rather than the “ius soli”, meaning that a descendant of an Italian who has never lived in Italy can apply for citizenship, while if you’re born in Italy, but from foreign parents, your citizenship is still linked to that of your parents. While the legal terms are quite complicated, we went out on the street next to Termini to ask people how they feel about the topic, in general. Would you agree that if you’re born and grown up in Italy, you’re Italian? Well, even here, opinions differ. Another TerminiTV voxpop for you.

  1. lo Ius Sanguinis é un concetto razzista, la cui utilitá é oscura
    lo Ius Soli é un concetto civile e civico equalitario che corrisponde al riconoscimento della cittadinanza per coloro che di fatto vivono la realtá di una nazione e ci lavorano e crescono.
    Secondo me la nazionalitá andrebbe anche data a chi viene sfruttato da societá italiane all’estero, o che lavora con multinazionali straniere in italia, per un grande numero di anni, visto che contribiscono all’economia del paese dovrebbero avere diritto al voto
