Italian Edition of “Noli Me Tangere” by Jose Rizal

My country and the Philippines seem to have more ties than I suspected.

Here in this country we have the largest Pinoy community in Europe, the only Jollibee restaurant in Europe, the Luneta Park in Rome with a monument to José Rizal standing in the middle of Manila Square and, on top of that, an Italian scholar named Vasco Caini became so interested in the work of José Rizal that he translated his novel “Noli Me Tangere” into Italian.

There are plenty of reasons why Filipinos should feel comfortable in my country: we have the Italian version of the “Noli”, the Jollibee, a growing number of big shopping malls, good food, nice weather. What prevents more Filipinos to come here then? Maybe a little economic recession……
