Mexicans come from Aztecs, Peruvians from Incas, Argentinians…from the boats

“The Mexicans come from the Aztecs, the Peruvians from the Incas, and the Argentinians…from the boats.” said once the Mexican poet Octavio Paz talking about the essence of the origin of the Argentinian nation.
Aside from 16th century Spanish colonisation, Argentina’s most significant influx of settlers arrived from Europe – mainly from Spain and Italy – coinciding with the definitive constitution of the state in 1880.
Argentine rulers intended the country to welcome productive immigration, although selectively; and Article 25 of the 1853 Constitution says: ‘The Federal Government will encourage European immigration, and it will not restrict, limit or burden with any taxes the entrance into Argentine territory for foreigners who come with the goal of working the land, improving the industries and teaching the sciences and the arts”.

Two moons

1606museoimmigrante

Staring from the window of the “hotel de los inmigrantes” in Buenos Aires, the gateway of  millions of immigrants arrived with the boats one century ago.
Mi ricordo anni fa, chiacchieravo con Moacir, un affabile contadino di Ilha do Ouro, paesino rurale del Sertão brasiliano. Non riusciva a credere che esistessero altre terre oltre il suo orizzonte. Mi chiedeva se la luna e le stelle della “mia terra” fossero le stesse di lì. Immaginava ci  potessero essere due, tre, cento lune.
Ecco, ora io posso immaginare che i primi immigrati italiani (e da altre parti del mondo) che venivano da villaggi molto poveri potessero pensare che ci fossero due lune. Una che si specchiava sul mare davanti a Fuscaldo e che avevano lasciato… un’altra che li aspettava in Argentina.
