I was born in Latin America. I moved to Italy in order to meet my family’s heritage, as my great-grandfather and great-grandmother were both from Italy.
Among my objectives were also to obtain the Italian citizenship, as I have Italian ascendants and to start an MBA at an European school.
I came to Italy with my family, knowledge and financial support. But, at the bottom line, I am an immigrant in Italy, and I see this country through immigrant eyes. And the Italy that I see, the real Italy, scared me to the point I am now ashamed of my Italian legacy and from my newly obtained Italian citizenship.
Considering the current Italian environment regarding immigrants and the critic viewpoint of this blog, it is wise to stay anonymous. So, I will adopt the name of Marcus Tullius Cicero.
