A century of migrations in Italy (1920-2020)
Cycle of six video lessons
organized by CNR-ISMed and Libraries of Rome
Fourth video lesson: The economic miracle and the 60s
From Tuesday 21 April at 12:00 on channel YouTube CNR-ISMed
The fourth lesson of the cycle deals with the period between the economic boom and the end of the 1960s. These were the years of the great internal migration between South and North-Central Italy, the rise of the consumer society and the decline of the peasant civilization. Internal immigrants had an important role in this process and in the demand for new rights that reached its peak with the Hot Autumn.
Stefano Gallo (CNR-ISMed) explores the various characteristics of migration during this period, from the repeal of laws against urbanism to the decrease in emigration abroad, concluding with the start of a new form of migration: the entry of foreign workers.
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?
