Hugo del Casale – “Tanos” 3

“Tano”. Aferesi di “napolitano”. All’origine dispregiativo, è diventato poi un termine affettuoso che abbraccia italiani e oriundi d’Argentina. Anch’io sono “tano”. “Lontano” sarebbe l’altra origine di “tano”.
Narra la leggenda che un tipo, nel porto di Buenos Aires, chiese ad un emigrante appena sbarcato da dove veniva. L’emigrante senza voltarsi e già con la testa carica di preoccupazioni e speranza, rispose…”da lontano”. Il tipo udì appena le due ultime sillabe.
Il “tano” Hugo del Casale, barbiere di successo, nato a Vasto nel 1945 e arrivato a Buenos Aires nel 1960 per raggiungere il padre. “Sono argentino e amo l’Italia: quando uno vede questo [8 metri di tricolore], ha capito tutto”.
“Tanos project” (3).

“Tano” is an aphaeresis of “Napoletano” (Neapolitan). Originally pejorative, it later became a positive term identifying all Italians and with Italian origins, living in Argentina. I am a “tano”, for example. “Lontano” (far away) it’s the other explanation of the word “tano”.
According to another less popular version, a guy asked an Italian immigrant just arrived by boat,  from where he came from. The immigrant heading to the new life of fear and hope, replied “da lontano…” (from far away…). The guy, only got the last two syllables…
The “tano” Hugo del Casale, successful barber, was born in Vasto in 1945 and arrived in Buenos Aires in 1960 to join his father. “I am Argentinean and I love Italy: watch this [8meters Italian flag], it tells everything…”

Amira: words and people from Sarajevo

1403amiradyptic“Words and people from Sarajevo”, work in progress. Amira is an activist who thinks that is the responsibility of each believer to struggle for better life and better future. “I always see silent people accepting passively the social and economic situation”. For this reason Amira, married and mother of three children, comes almost every day in front of the bosnian presidency building to protest against corruption and lack of political action: “corruption goodbye” (korupcija zbogom), it’s her message. A very positive attitude despite the lack of concern of part of the population. Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, March 2014 © Luca Bonacini.
