In the district of via Paolo Sarpi, known as the Chinatown of Milan, two realities cohabit: the Italian and the Chinese, apparently integrated with each other. In very truth, this hides a profound separation between two cultures and two nations. The statistics reports that Chinese run around 90% of the shops present in the area, but only 5% of these Chinese people live in the district: the 95% of the citizens residing are in fact Italian. The ethnic and cultural separation sometimes results in strong tentations, as during the violent demonstrations of the Chinese community in 2007. Both cultures maintain themselves rather closed towards the other and the contact is increasingly lost.
