|Abstract: ||This paper examines the narration of diasporic experiences by writers of Italian descent. It investigates the ways in which relationships between 'home' and 'destination' cultures are negotiated across the generations. Narratives by three women writers are analysed to show how negotiating the tensions between nostalgia for the past and the needs of the present transforms and translates notions of 'home' for writers who are living 'in between' cultures.|
