Abstract

In Italy, among the Asian communities, the Filipino one is the second per number of legally resident migrants as well as one of the eldest. The Filipino immigration group is characterized by a polarization towards the female gender and it is mainly involved in housework or personal care services (Annual Report, 2014).This long lasting presence in the Italian community involves interesting dynamics that involve their social identity (Tajfel, 1981), different cultural systems and perceived well-being. The aim of this study was to explore the attitudes of a group of Filipino first generation on: their integration processes; groups and identity dimensions; perceived well-being. Data have been collected through the administration of a semi-structured questionnaire in a face to face setting. Results seem to delineate a general positive framework with some elements of complexity from which could it be desirable to start promoting real integration processes.
