How many Italians are in Brazil? | Print |  E-mail

The Italian government estimates that approximately 25 - 30 million people of Italian descent are in Brazil - they started arriving in 1875 and by 1900 approximately 1 million Italians emigrated to Brazil. Most settled in the State of S√£o Paulo. Most came from the regions of Veneto (Venice), Campania (Naples) and Calabria.

The Brazilian government places the estimate between 15 million and 20 million. The current population of Brazil is approximately 195 million people, which means depending on the estimate you believe, approximately 10% of the Brazilian population has ties to Italy.

I have been privileged to visit both Brazil and Italy and I could certainly sense that connection between the two cultures though they can be geographically far apart.

Brazil and Italy can then be considered as sister countries with some shared heritage and great history link.

Obrigada!

Good to know that. We can easily conclude of a special connection between Italy and Brasil because of this big number of people. As Brasil is gearing up to be economically developed country, I am sure Italy can take advantage of this ties as it is struggling right now never to get into financial mess. :D :D
