There is plenty of information on the front page and in the forums on how to have your Italian citizenship recognized, get your citizenship back, become a citizen after living in Italy, etc!

If you go through the threads you will become aware of some lawyers to avoid and some that actually produced for their clients. Also, you will see all kinds of scenarios that other have gone through to obtain their citizen via an uninterrupted bloodline to Italy. If your time is more valuable than the legal fees then go with a lawyer. Finally, It would be nice if you post your results on Expats to maybe help others in your particular situation.
If you can trace your parents back to Italy and meet the timing retirements you will be okay. My family for example - my grandfather was born in Naples, my father in NYC (before his father became a citizen of the USA), I was born to my father. Based on that all I need are tons of papers to file and have my Italian citizenship recognized.
