Italians in Belgium

Italians in Belgium is a documentary edited and directed by Marta Scocco and produced by Perypezye Urbane in collaboration with Seamedia Howest.

It collects 15 interviews filmed across Belgium in 2014 documenting stories of the local Italian community. If once being Italian meant miner, it is no longer so: what is the Italian community in Belgium today? And is it still a community? How is the relationship between generations evolving, considering the new streams of young people coming from Italy?

Winner of the “Memorie Migranti 2015” prize promoted by the Regional Museum of Emigration Pietro Conti in Gualdo Tadino (Perugia, Italy).
