“Milano Città Mondo” (Milano World City) is a multiyear project created by Museo delle Culture (MUDEC) in collaboration with the City’s Office for Networking and Cultural Cooperation. Every year, in-depth studies focus on one of the numerous international communities living in Milan. These researches are then translated into exhibitions, conferences and events over a six-month program. Between February and July 2019, the theme of the survey will be Peru and the Peruvians of Milan, the city’s fourth largest community of migrants, and the largest among the communities from the American continent.
With the perspective of a story made by people, the exhibition “Storie in movimento” (Stories in motion) starts from individual testimonies and tries to delineate some social and economic dynamics. The voice of the people, their motivations, whether personal or imposed on them, their aspirations and their dreams become the stories of all those who have left or those who, on the other shore, have welcomed.
The exhibition starts off with a brief introduction on the century-old relationships joining Italy and Peru, and the two cities of Milan and Lima in particular. The origins of this link between Milan and Peru are in fact very ancient and can be traced back at least to the travels of the well-known Milanese explorer and writer Girolamo Benzoni (Milan, 1519 - 1570 ca.). But it is especially in the second half of the nineteenth century that the ties grow stronger, thanks to the increasingly prominent role that the Italian small commercial middle-class and a small circle of intellectuals, often Risorgimento exiles, began to play in Peruvian society after the country’s independence (1821). Clear from the restrictions on free movement imposed by the Spanish regime, from the last quarter of the 19th century Peru welcomed about 10,000 Italians, often from Liguria. Among the most famous “emigrants” of this period, we find the Milanese Antonio Raimondi (Milan 1824-San Pedro de Lloc 1890), an illustrious scientist who, thanks to his legacy, is regarded as one of the founders of Milan’s ethnographic collection now housed at Mudec. Italians kept settling in Peru, with some ups and downs (for example during the war with Chile), making their impact mostly in commerce and industry. It culminated with the opening of the Banca Italiana in Lima, in 1889. The bank soon became the most innovative and important in the country.
