Title
Family, Paesani and Networks: Politics and Economy of Montreal Italians
Abstract
Focusing on Montreal’s Italian community, the author examines the ideological nature of ethnicity and its functioning in political processes in urban Quebec. The community is divided into different families and regional groups of “paesani,” but is able to unite into one group according to necessity. In political processes, various Italian associations and presidents are connected to formal politics through the mediation of Italian political brokers.
