Brazil was the setting of the 2014 football World Cup and in less than a year will once again be in the limelight with the 2016 Olympic Games. And Brazil is also a country offering great opportunities for young Italians who decide to move abroad. This was the experience of Alfredo Spalla, a 28-year-old freelance journalist who has been living in São Paolo for two years and writes about sport and politics for a number of Italian and Brazilian newspapers.
Here, Alfredo 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. Each week will feature a new video-interview that can be viewed on the 9colonne.it website or on the Nove Colonne YouTube channel. Read more, in Italian
