  • Abstract ABSTRACT
    In recent years, the Italian mass media pointed at some tensions between Chinese immigrants and Italian society. This situation is unique since other European countries which host Chinese communities did not encounter similar problems of coexistence. Evidently, there are some factors which provoke disharmony among the two groups.
    This thesis analyzes integration of Chinese immigrants in Italian context. It aims to investigate and describe barriers hindering a successful integration between two communities. A qualitative method is employed in this research. The Study of integration theories first allowed determining the integration method that currently guides Italian integration policies. Statistical data and literature on the Chinese community in Italy disclosed that Chinese integration shall be distinguished in economic and social. While Chinese immigrants are well integrated economically, their social integration lags behind. Interviews allowed an understanding of the current situation. Finally, some recommendations are offered that may help alleviate tensions in mutual coexistence.
