Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Turkish law cuts citizenship rights off at the mother or father of the applicant for citizenship and it does not extend beyond that for citizenship "jure sanguis" or "by blood."
Italian law goes a bit further and provides for citizenship based on your maternal and paternal grandfather citizenship as long as your mother or father never renounced their Italian Citizenship before your birth.

Thank you for your reply.This requires you to do genealogy research and check through immigration records to determine whether or not they did so. Sometimes this research can take some time, depending on the country whose immigration service you are dealing with. There are some companies out there who will do all of the research and application for you if you qualify, for a fee of course.
Thank you for your reply.The Italian Government is fairly lenient in their jure sanguis citizenship, but they require specifically "grandfather" not "grandmother" as the relationship requirement for citizenship.
