A short holiday was enough to convince Pasquale Capitelli, a 30-something from the Province of Caserta, to move to Finland. The search for a job – and love – provided the motivation for him to emigrate to Vaasa, where he re-invented himself as a “pizzaiolo”, or pizza chef. “I opted for that because here in Finland if you don’t speak the language well it’s nearly impossible to enter certain jobs”.
Here, Pasquale tells his story in the new instalment of “Cartoline dall’altra Italia”, the web series produced by the 9colonne media agency with support from the Directorate General for Italians Abroad and Migratory Policies at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.
“Cartoline dall’altra Italia” is on a quest to discover the world of the new emigration: creating links with young Italians who – out of necessity or aspiration – have decided to experience life abroad. With their testimonies, the web series keeps that unbreakable thread linking them to Italy alive. The video-interviews can be viewed on the 9colonne.it website or on the Nove Colonne YouTube channel.
