moving to Italy, easier as expat or as Italian citizen

Post Posted: Sat May 07, 2016 2:50 am

Hi, I have recently found out that I have qualified for my Italian citizenship, and my husband and I want to relocate to Italy, is it easier to move as expats or as citizens? we would be sending household belongings, a vehicle, and have 3 dogs coming, we also want to purchase a home, but rent first to scope properties for sale, Do we ship and keep property in storage? do we rent a home/apartment until we find what we love? is it easier to purchase as expats or citizens, and the same with customs, easier as expats or citizens, what are the rules or where can we find them? Thanks so very much for your help.

if you need to work i suppose as an italian citizen ...also with the strangness of the italian politics you never know what is better... i left italy 16 years ago for uk and i still dont understand why they are so bad... but i know that a lot of people love it as the climate and food are excellent.
what part will you relocate to?

not sure, Family in Abruzzo and Tuscany, looking into homes near both locations, work not necessary, unless extravagant, no mortgage necessary. So any changes , including painting the walls a color you like needs a permit?
Will not be buying as expat as I already have an Italian citizenship and passport, I do not have a tax code. I have traveled to Italy multiple times as a child, teen , and adult. I use USA passport to leave and enter USA, Italian Passport to leave and enter Italy.

What is necessary for moving to Italy? I just received my Italian citizenship and desire a permanent move to include household and 1 vehicle. Can anyone assist? I will also maintain my USA citizenship. Thank you in advance. ty
