I was born in the UK to Italian immigrant parents and held an Italian passport until my mid-twenties. At this point I decided to get a British passport. The Italian passport expired and I never bothered to renew it as I didn't think I would need two separate passports for the European Union. With Brexit looming, I am now wondering if I can renew the Italian passport and also obtain one for my UK born children? My husband is English. How do I go about obtaining a new Italian passport after such a long gap? I've been married since my Italian passport expired so don't even have the same name.

    As long as you haven't renounced citizenship, you can renew your passport. However this is not a travel question so is likely to be closed. – Berwyn Jun 28 '16 at 13:47

    Relax, the actual Brexit is at least two years from now – Crazydre Jun 28 '16 at 13:59
  • @Crazydre two years is the timeline for a unilateral exit. If there is an agreement it can happen sooner. – Peter Green Jun 28 '16 at 22:40

As Long as you can still prove you're an Italian citizen (for which purpose an expired Italian passport surely helps), you're perfectly eligible for an Italian passport and ID card
