Ermir Lushnjari is a practicing Albanian lawyer who has lived and worked in Italy for years. In February of this year he had a unique idea: to create an app that treats - for those who have little time or few economic instruments but not only - the citizenship procedure.
The application Çaj Mali (mountain tea) earned him an invitation to Tirana last June by diaspora minister Pandeli Majko. In August The print dedicated a beautiful article to Ermir Lushnjari, while, in October, Rai 3 has created a service in its column of East West .
The door to the studio where he works Ermir Lushnjari opens early each morning. To play, to get information, most of them are foreigners who have the requisites to obtain Italian citizenship.
It is the same path that the 35enne legal practitioner of Albanian origin followed, starting from when - towards the end of the '90' years - he arrived in Italy without documents aboard a ship.
Since then he has come a long way: first a worker, then a carpenter, meanwhile he studies in the evening and at night to finally get his law degree with the idea of helping other foreigners in search of a future in our country.
"I gradually understood this mechanism. I made it mine, for me and my family and then for acquaintances and friends. ”- says Ermir.
For over twenty years, Ermir has lived in Verbania on the shores of Lake Maggiore, where hundreds of foreign citizens work and enter the field of tourism. Many of these, thanks also to word of mouth, turned to him and, from this strong request for information, his last idea was born.
A free, easy-to-use app through which those who can apply for Italian citizenship can start and monitor their own practice.
"With a simple click, the user sees the status of the practice as the app connects with a link from the interior ministry. The other available function is to be able to send reminders. ”- continues Ermir.
Until now the app has been downloaded 3000 times but the potential pool is very large. Only last year were the new Italians 146.000, with a slight slowdown compared to previous years.
"Caj Mali, which means mountain tea. Because I wanted an app easy to use, very easy to use even for a child who wants to help his parent. Easy, like the preparation of mountain tea. ”- says Ermir about the name of the app.
