Un senso della vita: Diasporic Identity Construction and the Search for Belonging

A pillowcase with stitched designs of Italy and Vietnam. A representation of the experiences of the Truong family, who were brought to Italy through the “associazione genitori di Mandello” which worked in conjunction with the Italian government and under the direction of the Catholic church. Given this context and comparing it to the current closed-border regime which seeks to limit refugee acceptance through methods of ‘remote control,’ this project intends to elucidate the construction of Prof. Hoang Truong’s identity going from Vietnam to Italy, Canada and subsequently the United States. Accompanied with essay by Maxim P. Harrell. 2020-04-30_5eaa4a30354bb_FinalProject-UnSensodellaVita
