L'emigrazione italiana nell'Africa mediterranea


  • Antonio Cortese


From the period of Unification until the mid-seventies of last century, Italy – latter a country of immigration – has witnessed considerable migratory flows towards foreign countries. In the paper are analyzed, from a predominantly demographic perspective, the outflows which covered the Mediterranean countries of Africa aiming at tracing back the extent and nature. Following the process of decolonization, the important Italian presence in the countries of the Southern shore of the Mediterranean is extremely limited and presents very different features from those that characterized the period of our “mass migration”.
