1848 a 1870. More than 20,000 emigrants left Italy and emigrated to the United States. This wave of emigration was due to political turmoil and revolution as Italy struggled to become an independent, unified state.

1870 a 1914. Between 1870 and 1880, an estimated 55,000 Italians came to the United States. From 1880 to 1890, more than 300,000 arrived. As news reached Italy of opportunities in the United States and economic problems increased in Italy, nearly 4 million Italians came to America between 1890 and 1914.

Two forms of population analysis have coexisted in Italy: population registers and censuses. Population registers are used to keep track of the changes experienced by the families of a commune. It is a dynamic register, while the census is a population count carried out at a given time, a static register.

This principle is the basis for most of the rejections of applications submitted to the municipalities (in Italy) or to the consulates; however, the “Corte di Cassazione Italiana” has in some cases shown a favorable orientation to the transmission of Italian nationality through the mother also to children born before the entry into force of the Italian Constitution; some court decisions, then, are conformed to these rulings.

Italian immigration in Colombia

“The happy and the powerful do not go into exile”. This reflection of Alexis de Tocqueville on European immigrants appears in Democracy in America, a classic text that gathers the impressions of his trip to the United States in 1831. The French thinker’s phrase perfectly reflects the condition of the Italians who emigrated there en masse at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries.

Between 1820 and 1870 Italian emigration reached practically every corner of the world, although the bulk went to Argentina and Brazil and only about 25,000 settled in the United States, mostly from the north of their country. Suddenly, in the 1870s and 1880s, 300,000 arrived. In the following decade, 600,000. And in the first of the new century, more than two million.

By then they exceeded 10% of the foreign-born population of the U.S. What caused such a spectacular immigration?
