The Italian Diaspora

This course will explore the Italian Diaspora, that is, the phenomenon that saw approximately twenty-four million people emigrate from Italy from the 19th century to the present day. After having studied the causes of emigration, students will focus on the impact of Italians and their descendents in their countries of adoption. Special attention will be paid to the United States, Argentina, Brazil, Canada and Australia.
