Italian diaspora

Finnish Italians are Finns who speak Italian, were born in Italy or are children of Italian immigrants. The number of Italians can only be measured in the number of Italian speakers, people born in Italy and their children, since Finland doesn't collect statistics on ethnicity.[3]


67% of Finnish Italians are male and 33% are female. 51.3% of Finnish Italians are employed, 9.5% are unemployed and 39.2% are outside the labour force. There are over 200 Italian students in Finland, and over 160 Italian entrepreneurs.[4] 761 Italian men are in a registered relationship with a Finnish woman.[5]

In 2018:[6]

  • 1,133 Finns had a dual Italian citizenship
  • 2,441 Finns had an Italian background
  • 2,709 Finns had an Italian citizenship
  • 2,857 Finns spoke Italian as their native language
  • 2,956 Finns were born in Italy
