CIAO!

Per voi connazionali

Tribolazioni, linguistiche e non, di una tra i tanti italiani a Londra. Parlo correntemente italiano e inglese ma non mi definisco mai bilingue. Il mio cervello attinge dalle due zone linguistiche quotidianamente, ma i confini sono spesso meno definiti di quanto ci si aspetti. Da qui le tribolazioni! “Bilinguismi” è il mio modo di fare pace con l’essere un emigrante in maniera sarcastica e, si spera, divertente.

 

For those who are not the Chosen Ones and don’t understand Italian:

Bilinguismo /bilinˈgwizmo/ is the Italian for bilingualism, which is the condition I’ve been living for the past two years. If you have spent some time with me, you probably know that this condition can lead to some pretty funny/messy/embarassing/younameit situations. “Bilinguismi” explores the doubleness of my expat self in terms of language and life, hopefully in a way that will make you smile. For a live performance of the word “bilinguismi”, feel free to ask me or any other Italian in London. I’m definitely not the only one!
