Filipino immigration. A study with a group of second generation



In Italy the Filipino immigration started during the Seventies and it became stabilized during the years (Annual Report, 2014) thanks to several factors that have bolstered their presence (Ambrosini & Buccarelli, 2009). Recently, after the increase of Filipino first generation nuclear families, the presence of Filipino second generation has risen (representing 21.5% of the entire community). Regarding these young people the double cultural belonging is a relevant question that involves complex dynamics of social identity’s (Tajfel, 1981) development. The aim of our study was to analyze the representational framework of a Filipino second generation’s group on: heritage and the Italian culture; perceived well-being; groups and identity dimensions. Data have been collected through the administration of a semistructured questionnaire in a face to face setting. Results pointed out a framework characterized by a reasonable tendency to biculturalism.
