A portrait of the family of Ferdinand IV and Maria Carolina of Austria, done in 1783 by Angelica Kauffman.

Maria Theresa plays the harp on the far left, and next to her is her brother Francis with a dog. Ferdinand and Maria Carolina are in the middle, with  Maria Cristina Teresa leaning on her mother. Maria Luisa sits in a carriage on the far right, and Maria Amalia sits in her sister’s lap. Prince Gennaro sits on a cushion on the floor, dressed in blue.

Four other children had died of smallpox before the portrait was done; Prince Carlo in 1778, Princess Maria Anna in 1780, Princess Maria Cristina Amelia in 1783, and Prince Giuseppe in 1783. Another daughter, Maria Cristina, was stillborn the same year the portrait was completed.

In your opinion is Italy at the stage of integration, where people don't discriminate against ethnic+religious people in work? Like could you go to a retail store or cafe and see black, East Asian, South Asian, Mid East, Muslims who wear headscarf working There? What about higher up more academic jobs? Are there many people from mentioned backgrounds working as teachers, professors lawyers, bankers, doctors etc? I would love to move to Italy supposing I wouldn't get widely discriminated against.

Hi, thanks for your question!

I’m afraid the answer is no. However, this is not exactly the consequence of failed integration: Italy is nowhere near the United Kingdom, France or even Germany when it comes to immigration and multiculturalism. Italy has been under foreign domination from the fall of the Roman Empire until 1871 and was never a major colonial power. The Italian Empire didn’t last long enough to have the same weight or impact as the British or French Empire. 

Italy’s population is still homogeneous, especially in Southern Italy. I’ve lived in Naples all my life before moving to Glasgow and I’ve never seen someone wearing an headscarf walking on the streets. I’ve seen Black people working in restaurants or as security officer at Zara or Armani, but higher up academic jobs? Not really.

Northern Italy and Rome are way more multicultural, Emilia-Romagna and Lombardy in particular (@janiedean lives in Rome and can offer you a better insight) but overall is still not enough to have East Asians working as lawyers, bankers or doctors. Most of the East Asians in Italy are immigrants from India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh and do not have any academic qualification. Their children, perhaps, might become doctors one day and there will be more East Asian doctors in Italy.

As for discrimination at work, some time ago I read about an Italian girl with Egyptian parents who couldn’t find a job as an hostess because of her headscarf. She sued the companies she applied to and won. According to Italian law, it’s illegal to discriminate people at work for any reason - doesn’t mean people won’t do it anyway. However, most of the stories about discrimination at work I’ve read these years were about sexual orientation and gender, not ethnicity or religion. I assume it’s because there are not many Muslims with headscarf or East/South Asians applying for jobs.

Your main problems would still be bureaucracy and high unemployment though.
