The Sinti Communities
in Italy

Having been present in Italy for centuries, the Sinti communities have taken part in all the major events that have shaped the contemporary history of this country. The continuous presence in the territories of central and northern Italy and the short-range nomadism favoured the Sinti connection to the regions they are settled in, within which they are economically well integrated. The kin networks maintain a feeling of affiliation that is rather dynamic and based on specific codes.
