In Italy as Non EU, if you are lucky you will receive your Italian citizenship after 13-14 years.

"are lucky" ? I will keep my conclusion for myself

To have it with General McArthur, he possibly was a soldier and "old soldiers never die ... they just fade away..... "

Re: How multicultural are cities in Switzerland?

Hi All,

I can talk about Baden, which is near to Zurich although it is a small and self sufficient city in a Aargau (a different canton). There are nationals of over 50 countries living and working in Baden or satellite towns like Nussbaumen, Turgi, Wettingen. Alstom which is a biggest employer in this region (Aagau Canton) has nationals of over 65 countries working in the ALSTOM locations in Badan, Turgi and Birr.

The apartment building where I live in Nussbaumen near Baden has over 50% people from nationalities other than Swiss..

So I guess many large cities plus the ones like Baden which has large MNC employers are truly multicultural

Re: How multicultural are cities in Switzerland?

I do personally think that having foregines in a country, enriches the society. But it isn't actually so good, if there are too much. This is a thing that the government of Switzerland has to deal with. I do personally belive that Switzerland is having among the most foregines in Europe.
Is this a good or a bad thing? What prons and cons could it be, having a lots of foregines in a country? I don't actually have an opinion on this question. But at the same time. My opinion about Muslims is very clear. They are all human being and should be respected by the society itself.

You might put it the other way round with Switzerland having a long and solid history of EMIgration while IMMIgration is something of AFTER 1880 and so relatively new
Nice observation ... just read this (in a totally different context):
Quote:
En effet, au 20e siècle, la Suisse a beaucoup changé: d’un pays agricole à une nation industrielle, d’une terre d’émigration à une terre d’immigration, d’un Etat pauvre à l’un des Etats les plus riche du monde.
Translation:
Quote:
Indeed, in the 20th century, Switzerland has changed a lot: from an agricultural to an industrial nation, from a land of emigration to a land of immigration, from a poor state to one of the richest countries in the world.

1) I don't think all muslims are foreigners.
2) what is your opinion on muslims? I'm(was??) christian.
