ROME

BY ASHA SABRIE

Overview

Over the last 20 years the city of Rome has become multiethnic. The first African immigrants came from former Italian colonies, Somalia, Ethiopia and Eritrea to study or work between the 1950s and 60s.
In the early 70s women from Cape Verde came to do domestic work.
From the 80s onwards, the flow of African immigrants has increased. Many West Africans have settled in Rome, creating more a dynamic African community.
Twenty-first century Rome is undergoing social and cultural change with a second generation of Africans who see it as their city and consider themselves Romans.
