Margaret Hills de Zarate’s research involves an examination of the role of objects in mediating constructions of identity in relation to Italian transgenerational migration.  One research question is how processes of translation occur within material culture, in particular, those processes that are intermedial and relate to leaving and arriving. These photographs, taken in the Quartieri Spagnoli in Naples constitute part of  her reflection on one of the places left behind by a key respondent who migrated to Ensenada, a city and port in Buenos Aires Province, from Naples in 1947.
