An original Italian easy reader, by Francesca Colombo
A ‘diaspora’ is a population that lives somewhere different from their original home, or that of their forebears. Since the late nineteenth century, millions of Italians have emigrated in search of better prospects. By 1980 it was estimated that twenty-five million Italians had made their home outside of Italy, in countries all over the world…
La distanza tra Roma e Canberra è di circa 16.000 chilometri, che equivalgono a un viaggio in aereo molto lungo, più o meno 20 ore. E, in effetti, gli italiani usano l’espressione “in Australia” come sinonimo per “lontanissimo, il posto più lontano del mondo, quasi un altro pianeta”.
Ma allora cosa ci fanno lì così tanti italiani?! Secondo le ultime statistiche, il numero di italiani nati in Australia e di origine italiana sarebbero circa un milione e gli italiani immigrati recentemente 178.000. Nei prossimi capitoli conosceremo meglio la storia degli italiani in Australia e la loro situazione nel presente.
