La Suisse romande au prisme du vécu et des représentations des immigrés italiens – Une approche par l’écriture (im)migrante

Abstract : Switzerland constituted since the nineteenth century a kind of El Dorado for many Italians in search of better living conditions. This article aims to observe French-speaking Switzerland in the prism of the real-life experience and the representations of one of foreign communities most formerly settled on its territory. The reflection leans on the autobiographical narratives (published) by two Italian immigrants, Carla Belotti and Marie-Rose De Donno, and the extracts of l'Éloge du migrant by Adrien Pasquali, writer born in Valais in a family native of Liguria. These (im)migrant writings constitute a fertile observation field of intercultural phenomena which characterize the contemporary societies because they allow to question by a double look - inside / outside - fundamental issues such as the withdrawal, the lock in the other one, or on the contrary, the welcome capacity and, in this case, to seize, in its sensitive dimension, the place of immigrants (Italians here ) in the Swiss society.
