From beating Chinese to being grateful to China, the Italians changed 180 degrees!

From beating Chinese to being grateful to China, the Italians changed 180 degrees!

From “Chinese people eat bats, disgusting!” To “We must thank them now.” This new crown pneumonia epidemic in early 2020 has allowed the author to witness the change in attitudes of ordinary Italians towards Chinese and Chinese.

Due to the immigration of parents, I settled in Italy with my family when I was younger. I remember that when I first arrived in Milan, Chinese people basically lived in Chinatown. In order to allow the author to quickly integrate into the local life, I chose to live In the Italian community, the school of choice is also an environment with few Chinese.

Since there are fewer Chinese in the selected area, the Italians regard us as a treasure of the community. Everywhere I go, I think it is as precious as seeing a panda. Wait, the police officer who belongs to the community will smile and deal with us very efficiently.

At school, as the only Chinese in the entire grade, the author also enjoys meticulous care, from classmates to teachers, and even the principal. At that time, the writer faced the kind faces and felt good about this country.

Over time, the number of Chinese people began to grow rapidly. Italian restaurants are full of Chinese restaurants, Chinese department stores, and so on. Due to differences in business philosophy, most Chinese dishes and products are cheap and low-cost. Advantages of entering the market. So the Italians began to plant the idea: Chinese = cheap = low-grade.

Once this kind of thinking is formed, for example, in school, when Chinese classmates come to the party with delicious Chinese food, the Italians will praise the deliciousness of Chinese food, but do not think it is a high-grade dish, and the Italian classmates hold a simple Italian desserts, however, will be placed in the most prominent position on the table as a symbol of high-end.

At work, the hard-working nature of the Chinese people will make Italian colleagues look at them. The Chinese are easy-going and harmonious with others. They often become good people in the team, but over time, they will be bullied by some lazy and sly Italians. If you don’t lose your temper, it will be regarded as a good bully. If you lose your temper, it will cause public opinion that “you Chinese have a bad attitude.”

With the increase in the number of immigrants, the attitudes of staff of government agencies, police stations and other relevant departments will gradually deteriorate and become impatient. Due to the large differences in language, most Chinese people are slower to learn Italian than other foreigners, and their pronunciation is inaccurate. They are often treated badly by staff during the process.

The famous Italian funny shows often use Chinese products to ridicule, and ridicule that the quality of something is not good, it will add “because this is made in China”.

The examples above are endless. Since about 2005, many Italians have become impatient, disgusting, or even discriminating against the Chinese …

The writer sometimes looks at the behavior of a small number of people with low quality, and there is also a little speechless. After all, it is on the territory of other countries. His words and deeds not only represent his own personal image, but also the image of the country. But stubborn Italians will not know how to analyze and discriminate like we do. They will group all Chinese people together. In the face of many people in recent years who care about high consumption and quality behavior, they will be paranoid that they are Koreans or The Japanese, even if they really understand the facts, will only add the phrase “only rich Chinese talents will do this.” As the author of the luxury goods industry all the year round, the most common Italian attitude is “Chinese are cash machines”.

The new crown pneumonia epidemic that swept the world in early 2020 is changing the attitude of Italians in just a few months.

At first, many Italians imposed the source of the virus on every Chinese person like the wind, and the Chinese old man was beaten with a mask. Chinese walking on the road will be accused of “virus”. An interview from a TV station blatantly stated that “the virus will be infected in China because their medical treatment is not advanced.” The Italian friends around me phoned one by one to console and care, seemingly very warm, but some Italians really care about us not to meet them in the near future (although only a few people).

On Facebook, Twitter and other social networks, some ignorant young people in Italy made comments such as “Chinese eat dog meat, eat mice, eat bats now! Disgusting” and so on. Although some rational voices in the drop-down comments explained: “There are still people who eat raw fish, raw oysters, and brains … Every country has its own culture”, but it will soon be overwhelmed by words of discrimination and abuse.

The mayor of Sodocolina, in the province of Bergamo in northern Italy, Mauriziodis, on his Facebook account, used very rude words to insult the Chinese and said that “they (the Chinese) should die!” And Added 5 exclamation points at the end. Serious discrimination is beginning to worsen.

Recently, with the peak of new crown pneumonia virus infection in Italy, many neighboring countries in Europe have gradually become nervous. Due to the unobstructed traffic conditions in the European Union, neighboring countries have begun to attribute Italians to infected people, and colored glasses have also become popular in Europe. The Italians bear the brunt of being “discriminated”.

First and foremost is France, which often compares with Italy and is uncomfortable with each other. In the advertisement of a French entertainment channel (canal +): a pizza master is baking pizza, but he suddenly starts coughing and spit a thick green sputum in the pizza On the close-up of the last baked pizza, with the caption title “corona pizze” (new crown virus pizza), with green, white and red font, that is, the color of the Italian flag, the narration is unbridled saying “new crown virus pizza, New Italian pizzas to be distributed around the world. ” The video starkly expressed the French TV’s mockery of Italy.

Suddenly, the Italians couldn’t sit still. The Italian Minister of Agriculture strongly demanded that the French side apologize, saying that France was not satire, but degraded the entire country. Foreign Minister Di Maio also said “unacceptable, this is disrespect to the Italians.”

This insult has been pushed by others. At this point, some Italians have begun to wake up and began to examine their previous attitudes towards the Chinese. On Twitter, some Italian netizens left a message:

“Did we not do the same thing to the Chinese restaurant? Brain damage.”

“After doing so many years of intolerance to others, it’s sad for us now, right?”

“After that, we should apologize to the Chinese people. If they allow it, because we are a ridiculous nation and country without minimal dignity and national pride.”

Earlier on a video website, an Italian man said in the video that his sister was infected, but without a hospital and a bed, he was always staying at home, no one answered when he called for help, and his sister’s breathing became increasingly difficult. The lungs were full of mucus. The Italian ventilator was as precious as gold. The man took the risk of being infected with artificial respiration for his sister, but the effect was minimal. He desperately said in the video, “No one calls me back. We played and Italy gave us up. “

In this case, it was China that extended a helping hand to Italy. On the afternoon of March 11, two experts from the West China Hospital of Sichuan University flew to Italy along with the volunteer team of the Chinese Red Cross, and brought relevant humanitarian relief supplies to support Italy in fighting the new crown pneumonia epidemic.

Facing the Chinese medical team’s assistance to Italy, Italian Foreign Minister Di Mayo expressed his gratitude to China in an interview with Italian National TV: In difficult times, we helped each other, and now they give us back with the same solidarity. The Italian Daily, Italian mediaset TV and other media have also started to report positively. “The Chinese are here. The state-of-the-art medical team brought me medical supplies. The experienced team is here. About 1,000 ventilators are in use. “

On social media, the attitude of Italian netizens is more direct, and some people reflect on previous discriminatory attitudes: “Think of those who come to help us are the ones we have offended for a long time,” “We insult and beat them, they said, let We learn “,” To the Chinese five bodies, Italy accused them of everything, but they saved the Italians with full respect. “

Some people also compare the attitudes of the United States and its European neighbors with China: “American soldiers” and “Chinese doctors”. “Let us remember who is helping us now, let us remember this.”

“Let’s see if there are still many people who have the courage to discriminate against them, and we must now thank them.”

“I still feel very relieved to go to the Chinese people to buy things, and even went to a Chinese restaurant for dinner two weeks ago. They are as amiable as ever, humble and smiling, never a lack of great people.”

“After these are over, we have to remember.”

A few days ago, the Italian ambassador to the EU published a signed article on the U.S. Political News website, complaining that no EU country had responded to the European Commission’s appeal (helping Italy), and only China had responded bilaterally. It is hoped that this experience of China and Italy joining hands in fighting the epidemic will bring about a fundamental change in Italian attitudes towards China and the Chinese.

从“中国人吃蝙蝠,恶心!”到“我们现在必须感谢他们”,2020年初的这场新冠肺炎疫情,让笔者见证了意大利普通人对华人和中国态度的转变。

由于父母移民的原因,笔者在年纪比较小的时候就随家人定居在意大利,记得刚刚到米兰的时候,华人基本都居住在唐人街一带,家人为了让笔者能快速融入到当地的生活,选择居住在意大利人的社区里,选择的学校也是华人寥寥无几的环境。

 

由于选择的地区华人较少,意大利人把我们当成了社区的一宝,走到哪里都像是看到了大熊猫一样珍贵,邻里之间相处融洽,见面尽管不认识也会微笑打招呼,会互相帮助等等,社区所属的警局工作人员,会微笑着并非常有时效的给我们办理业务。

在学校,作为整个年级唯一一名中国人,笔者也享受到了无微不至的关怀,从同学到老师,甚至是校长。那时候的笔者面对一张张和善的面孔,对这个国家很有好感。

随着时间慢慢过去,国人在意的数量开始飞速增长,意大利遍地开满中餐厅,中国百货店等等,由于经营理念的差异,大部分中国菜和商品都是以物美价廉,低消费作为进入市场的优势。于是在意大利人心里开始种下了这个思想:中国的=便宜=档次低。

这种思想一旦形成非常可怕,比如学校里,当中国同学带着美味的中餐来参加聚会,意大利人会啧啧称赞中餐的美味,却不认为是上档次的菜肴,而意大利同学捧着一个简单的意式甜点,却会被放在餐桌最显眼的位置,作为高档次的象征。

在工作中,中国人吃苦耐劳的天性,会让意大利同事刮目相看,中国人性格随和、会与人相处和谐,往往成了团队中的老好人,但久而久之,会被一些比较偷懒且狡猾的意大利人欺负,若是不发脾气就会被看作好欺负,若是发了脾气,则引起“你们中国人态度差”的舆论,开始言论上做出国家民族的区分。

随着移民数量的增长,政府机关,警局等相关部门工作人员的态度也会慢慢变差,变得没有耐心。由于语言的差异比较大,大部分中国人和其他外国人比起来,学习意大利语的速度比较慢,发音也不精准,经常在办事过程中遭到工作人员的恶劣对待。

意大利著名的搞笑节目经常会拿中国产品进行调侃,讽刺某东西质量不好,就会加上“因为这是made in China”。

以上的例子举不胜举。大致是2005年开始,许多意大利人对中国人的态度逐渐变的不耐烦,嫌弃,甚至是歧视……

笔者有时看着少部分素质不高国人的举止,也会有些许无语,毕竟是在别国领土上,自己的一言一行,不仅是代表着自己个人形象,也同样代表着国家形象。但固执的意大利人不会像我们一样懂得分析辨别,他们会将所有中国人统统归类在一起,面对近几年很多国人在意高消费及有素质行为,他们会偏执地认为是韩国人或者日本人,即使是真正了解了事实,也只会加上一句“只有有钱的中国人才会这样”。常年做奢侈品行业的笔者,最常见的意大利人态度就是“中国人就是提款机”。

2020年初的席卷全球的这场新冠肺炎疫情,短短的几个月,正在让意大利人的态度发生改变。

起初,许多意大利人跟风一样地将病毒的来源强加在每一个中国人头上,中国老人戴口罩遭到毒打。华人走在马路上会被指着骂“病毒”。某电视台的采访竟公然说“这种病毒会在中国大肆感染,是因为他们的医疗不先进”。身边的意大利朋友电话一个接一个地来慰问关心,看似很温暖,实则是有的意大利人真正关心的是我们不要近期见面传染给他们(虽然只是少数人)。

在脸书、推特等社交网络上,意大利一些无知的年轻人,发表“中国人吃狗肉,吃老鼠,现在吃蝙蝠!恶心”等等言论。尽管下拉评论里有些理性声音在解释:“还有人吃生鱼,吃生生蚝,吃脑……每个国家都有自己的文化”,但很快会被一些歧视和谩骂华人的话语淹没。

意大利北部贝加莫省索多科利纳市市长毛里齐奥迪斯在自己的脸书账号上,用非常粗鲁的言语谩骂中国人,并称“应该只有他们(中国人)去死!”并在结尾加上了5个感叹号。严重的歧视开始愈演愈烈。

近期,随着意大利的新冠肺炎病毒感染高峰期来临,不少欧洲临近国家开始逐渐紧张起来。由于欧盟内陆畅通无阻的交通条件,邻国开始将意大利人统统归在感染人群中,有色眼镜也开始在欧洲内部流行起来。意大利人首当其冲成为了被“歧视”的对象。

首当其冲就是与意大利经常互相攀比并且互看不爽的法国,法国某娱乐频道(canal+)的广告中:一名披萨师傅正在烤制披萨,但他突然开始咳嗽,并且吐了一口绿色的浓痰在披萨上,最后烤出来的披萨特写,配上字幕标题“corona pizze”(新冠病毒披萨),配上绿白红颜色的字体,也就是意大利国旗的颜色,旁白更是肆无忌惮的说“新冠病毒披萨,将在世界各地流通的新型意大利披萨”。视频赤裸裸地表达了这家法国电视台对意大利的嘲笑。

顿时,意大利人坐不住了,意农业部部长强烈要求法方道歉,称法国不是讽刺,而是贬低整个国家。外交部部长迪马约也表示“无法接受,这是对意大利人的不敬”。

这种落井下石的行为,由己推人,至此,部分意大利人开始醒悟,开始审视自己先前对华人的态度,在推特上,有意大利网友留言:

“我们不是对中餐厅做了同样的事吗?脑残。”

“在对别人做了那么多年不宽容的事之后,现在换我们难过了,对吗?”

“之后,我们应该向中国人道歉。如果他们允许的话,因为我们是一个荒谬的,没有最低限度的尊严和民族自豪感的民族和国家。”

早前在某视频网站上,一名意大利男子在视频中说自己的姐姐感染了,但是没有医院和床位,他一直在家里守着,打电话求助也没人接听,姐姐的呼吸越来越困难,肺里充满了黏液,意大利的呼吸机像金子一样珍贵,这名男子冒着被感染的风险给姐姐做人工呼吸,但效果微乎其微,他绝望的在视频里说“没人给我回电话,我们玩了,意大利放弃我们了。”

在这种情况下,是中国向意大利伸出了援助之手。3月11日下午,四川大学华西医院2名专家随中国红十字会志愿专家团队飞赴意大利,并携带相关人道救援物资,支援意大利共同抗击新冠肺炎疫情。

面对中国医疗队对意大利的援助,意大利外长迪玛约在接受意大利国家电视1台采访时,表达了对中国的感谢:困难时期,我们彼此互助,现在他们以同样的团结之心回馈我们。而意大利日报、意大利mediaset电视台等媒体也都纷纷开始正面积极的报道,“中国人来了,带来的最先进的医疗团队,带来了医疗物资,有经验的团队来了,几周后将有约1000台呼吸机投入使用。”

在社交媒体上,意大利网友的态度则更为直接,有人反省先前的歧视态度:“想想那些来帮助我们的人就是我们得罪了很久的人”,“我们侮辱和殴打他们,他们说,让我们学习”,“对中国人五体投地,意大利指责他们的一切,他们却拯救意大利人,完全的尊敬。”

也有人将美国及欧洲邻国的态度与中国放在一块对比:“美国派士兵”,“中国派医生”。“让我们记住现在谁在帮助我们,让我们记住这一点。”

“让我们看看,是否仍有许多人有勇气歧视他们,我们现在必须感谢他们。”

“我依然非常安心的去中国人那里买东西,甚至两周前还去了中餐厅吃饭,他们一如既往的和蔼可亲,谦虚和微笑从来没有缺少过,伟大的民族。”

“在这些结束后,我们要记住。”

几天前,意大利驻欧盟大使在美国政治新闻网站上刊登署名文章,抱怨没有一个欧盟国家相应欧盟委员会的呼吁(帮助意大利),只有中国作出了双边回应。希望这一次中意携手抗疫的经历,能够带来意大利人对中国和华人态度的根本转变。
