Historical Comparisons

The process of migration has not been merely a phenomenon of the near past and the present. The author compares the known emigration of Slovenes in the second half of the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries with a lesser known emigration of Slavs who lived in the present day territory of Yugoslavia, to Italian lands during the period from the early Middle Ages to the end of the Eighteenth Century. Many similarities between the earlier migration and the more recent ones are established.
