Starting with Marco Guglielmi's recently published dissertation The Romanian Orthodox Diaspora in Italy: Eastern Orthodoxy in a Western European Country (Palgrave Macmillan 2022), the reproduction of religious and national identity in the Orthodox diaspora, its relationship to the state and to its country of origin, Romania, and to the Roman Catholic Church is discussed. Italy, as a "Western European Orthodox stronghold" (Guglielmi), is home to the largest Orthodox minority in Western Europe and the largest Romanian Orthodox diaspora in the world.

Panel discussion with:

Marco Guglielmi (Università di Padova)
Cristian Sonea (Universitatea Babeș-Bolyai Cluj-Napoca)
