That confirms the 22 relation about the migration of the foundation Ismu that photographs a situation : it’s too easy for a migrant to apply for the Italian citizenship to stay in Italia and this is easier than waiting for the EU to give a residency that takes a lot of time .
It’s not a case that in many Italian regions in 2015 and in 2016 have been registered an increase in the requests for citizenship like a drop instead of the requests for the residency permission . the reasons are clear and staying in time but also in the difficulties that have been registered to have the residency permission .
For example if you need to have the residency card it is necessary to pass an Italian language test and on the other hand there is no test for the citizenship , the card serves the release of the housing eligibility from the common but for the citizenship no .
That makes the taxes for the person increase also to 500 Euro for any practice , and asks for other documents , that makes the life harder to change the applicants idea .

Then the applicants can continue staying in Italy and waiting , and in case they get positive answer they will get new lifes , in fact the Italian citizens will be free to move in Europe searching for jobs that they will not get .
