The itBuenosAires.it site revolves around the concept of “Italianness” and the correlated one of “sponsorship of Italy”.
It is an exciting challenge: we want to convey ideas on what it means to "be Italian", communicating in a clear, immediate, direct, but not simplistic or trivial way. The heart, the crux of this challenge is to bring out a variegated, multiple, non-pre-established idea of “Italian identity” that cannot be reduced to the classic stereotypes (both negative and positive) of being Italian.
The itBuenosAires site wants to present itself as a mosaic of stories, news, impressions that recalls the warmth of a common belonging, of the sharing of experiences, perceptions, traditions, but also openness to the world, fluidity, permeability to contributions of other cultures, contributions that allow fertile and unprecedented transformations and integrations.
Those who go to live outside Italy may have many and various motivations, but they bring with them a treasure of knowledge, words, places, native flavors, experienced "at home" and stratified in memory, habits, lifestyle and if it makes him, more or less consciously, an "ambassador" in the country of arrival.
The idea is to weave a common story (and a collective identity) made up of individual stories, to create "communities" through possible reflections, but also to deny easy generalizations that derive from stereotyped images. Added to this is the opportunity to share problems and solutions, information, initiatives, networking through the network.
It is, therefore, a real narrative and analytical guide, useful not only for recounting the experiences of the inhabitants of the Bel Paese who have decided to live in Buenos Aires.
Behind the project, a work team composed mainly of Italians and descendants who found their new home in Buenos Aires.
