Abstract: This is the first volume illustrating the findings of the research among the refugees from Istria-Dalmatia-Rijeka and their descendants; this volume reports the results of the fieldwork among the refugees displaced at the time in Italy; in the following one, the subject are those who resumed their lives abroad, in Argentina and Canada.
Results and analysis build up on interviews with the members of the refugees community, following an outline that leads to exploring the themes of the remembrances of the exodus, the places of memory and of past everyday life, the childhood language and dialect, the identity dispersed and transmitted to the subsequent generations.
The two final chapters offer some hypotheses on the design of the future, from the subjective viewpoint of refugees and from the structural viewpoint of the organizations.
