Ethnic identity and intercountry adoption: thematic path

The thematic path, published for the first time in an electronic format only as a supplement to n. 1/2013 of Rassegna bibliografica, deals with a specific aspect of intercountry adoption: the construction of identity in adopted children and adolescents of different ethnic backgrounds.

The filmographic journey that follows, by film critic Fabrizio Colamartino, by means of an accurate filmography, deals with the theme of identity under construction. The film narrative is based on the theme of a return journey: on the one hand, the parents' journeys to their adopted children's countries of origin, and on the other, the adoptees' return to the places where they were born, in a continuous process of self-definition.
