Hidden Identity – The Italian-Chinese community in Prato: Photography exhibition and roundtable
In the last thirty years the Italian and Chinese communities in Prato have been forced closer together. For this reason they have developed a new identity, the “sameness of essential or generic character in different instances” (Webster Merriam Dictionary definition for “identity”). There are certainly still elements of diversity between these communities, but each year this new ‘hidden identity’ is growing.

Mr. Francesco Arese Visconti (Webster University, Geneva Campus)
Giorgio Bernardini (Journalist, ANSA and Corriere Fiorentino)
Eva Pedrelli (Journalist, La Repubblica and Swiss Italian Television)
