In what way may I obtain dual citizenship of US and the EU (preferably Italian)?

Asked 7 months ago - Miami, FL

I was born in Cuba. I came to the US when I was 9 yrs old and have applied for and became a US citizen. I am a pilot. My family are all of Cuban nationality who now live in Italy and applied for and became Italian citizens. I want Italian citizenship because I want to work preferably for Alitalia and be near my family. I also visit Italy very frequently to visit my family.
