The first Guide-book to Italian Roots will be presented at an event at the Farnesina on Wednesday 25 September 2019, at 4.00 pm.
In this first edition, the Guide-book – created by the Directorate General for Italians Abroad and Migration Policies of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in collaboration with the Italian Raiz Association – is dedicated to four regions of our Country (Abruzzi, Basilicata, Emilia Romagna and Apulia).
