  • Hyphenated Italians, the Italian Diaspora
    Part 1 of 5: Introduction

    by Candida Martinelli

    I've seen numbers like 58 million Italians in Italy, and an estimated 50 million abroad of Italian descent. But if, as is estimated, 27 million people emigrated from Italy from 1870 to 1970, then the numbers are quite likely higher. Italians moved to places like Venezuela, Argentina, Canada, Australia, the USA, Britain, Belgium, Switzerland, and more.

    The Italian Diaspora, like most Diaspora, is active abroad but largely ignored by the Italian government. The Ministry for Italians Abroad looks after the interests of only Italian citizens abroad. People of Italian origin are not considered Italian, and in the legal sense, the Ministry is correct. But for people who have all their lives been labeled "Italian", that can come as a surprise, if not a shock.

    This article looks at the relationship between hyphenated Italians and native Italians.
