(p.162) Chapter 9 Afro-Italian Literature: From Productive Collaborations to Individual Affirmations
Africa in Europe

Christopher Hogarth

Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines the situation and work of Africans living and writing in Italy. It gives particular attention to those who were originally from francophone Senegal, their motivations for writing in Italian and the challenges they faced working between two languages. It discusses early relationships of patronage, ventriloquism and collaboration between native Italian writers and editors and African authors. Presenting the most recent developments in Afro-Italian writing in terms of the emergence of an independent voice, the chapter explores the ways in which Afro-Italian writers of both the first generation and a new, Italian-born one are reflecting on the challenges and possibilities of hybrid identities.

Keywords:   Italy, literature, Senegalese, Afro-Italians
