Abstract

The Italians who were fleeing the economic crisis, have settled in Tunisia in the 19th century. After the independence of Tunisia in 1956, much of the Italians in Tunisia, as the French, returned to their home country. The proximity of Sicily with Tunisia has always facilitated trade between the two countries, from Roman times till today. Marcello Bivona has made a film about the Italian community in Tunisia.
