Diary of an Expat
Thu 26 Mar 20
Diary of an Expat is a comic story of the encounter between modern migrant, Cecilia, and London – a contemporary El Dorado craved by generations of young Europeans. Faced with the possibility of having to leave her home of ten years, Cecilia Gragnani is sharing her personal experiences to ask ‘What does it feel like to be an expat?’
Cecilia arrived in the UK from Italy nine years ago with a suitcase full of hopes, dreams and pasta. Diary of an Expat looks at the road to becoming a British citizen, embracing a new nationality whilst staying true to your roots, and the knocks your identity takes when no country claims you as their own. From amusing miscommunications to bewildering legal technicalities, Cecilia delves into the day-to-day of living in a country that can’t pronounce your surname.
