The sixth and last lesson of the cycle deals with the period closest to us, the last thirty years that separate 1990 from today. The dominant theme is foreign immigration, which proceeds at an extremely fast pace, transforming the face of Italy, particularly in the central phase of the period between 2000 and 2010. Amnesty, citizenship, asylum seekers are some of the issues addressed, to conclude with the evolution of internal migration and the resumption of flows abroad.
Stefano Gallo (CNR-ISMed) briefly introduces some aspects of immigration of foreign citizens, addressing issues related to the composition of flows by nationality, entry and reception policies, second generations, with reference to the main events of the period.
THE CYCLE OF LESSONS: "A century of migrations in Italy (1920-2020)" is a series of lessons dedicated to the history of migration, organized by CNR-ISMed and Libraries of Rome. The idea was born in March 2020, in the midst of the restrictions linked to the Covid-19 epidemic, to continue to tell the story from home. An opportunity for students, teachers, readers, researchers, simple onlookers, who can confront themselves directly with experts in the subject.
What do we know about the history of migration in Italy? When, how and why did Italian citizens emigrate abroad? By whom and how is foreign immigration composed? What are the main trajectories of internal migration?
