 Carmine Abate

Carmine Abate (born 24 October 1954) is an Italian writer. He spent his childhood in Carfizzi, a small village of the Arbėreshė community in the southern region of Calabria. He grew up speaking Arbėresh, a variant of the Albanian language. After graduating from the University of Bari, he moved to Hamburg, where his father had earlier emigrated. There he taught at a school for immigrants and began publishing his first stories. In 1984, his first collection of short stories appeared under the title Den Koffer und weg! This was followed by a socio-anthropological study conducted jointly with Meike Behrmann; their account of a community of Calabrian emigrants was published as I Germanesi. Having spent more than a decade in Germany, Abate returned to Italy and settled in Besenello in Trentino, where he continues to work as a writer and teacher. <
