Departures—Causes and Extent of the Greek Migrations

  • Niccolò Fattori
Chapter
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Migration History book series (PSMH)

Abstract

This chapter looks at the causes and the extent of the migration itself, describing what spurred hundreds of individuals to leave their homes, cross the Adriatic and settle in Ancona. It argues that instead of talking about a single, univocal Greek migration, it would be more appropriate to talk about several migratory strands, influenced in different ways by the changes that were taking place in the region.

Keywords
