Il contesto linguistico della letteratura italiana dell'emigrazione. Sondaggi

  • Martino Marazzi


The culture of the Italian immigrant experience worldwide has been characterized by daily dynamics of adaptations and transformations deeply shaping the processes of identity-formation. By looking at the diverse and decade-long linguistic metamorphoses we can start to reclaim the importance of a literary production too often overlooked (both in its âinstitutionalâ works and in its more personal autobiographical expressions) â and at the same time re-evaluate the complex creativity of its linguistic fabric.
