So now we’re just waiting for the citizenship approval to be communicated to the Detroit consulate. My wife will need to take her oath and get her passport. I just learned from the Italian Citizenship Message Board that she cannot do these in the same day. After she takes her oath, her citizenship is not effective until midnight. So we are going to look into having her possibly take her oath at a local Vice-Consulate – there’s one in Nashville – and then go to the consulate in Detroit (or possibly another consulate) to get her passport. She’ll need it before we travel to Italy next summer.
