I think the Italians value the concept of family as being extended to include cousins, grandparents, and aunts and uncles because individuals in Italy grow up with the presence of an extended family unit. In my experience in America, my family is only my parents and siblings. I have very little family in the US and the ones I do have, I’ve lost contact with. The loss of contact came because my parents began to work a lot and that meant less time to connect with Ethiopian community for meetings and being around family. I think that the US tends to value materials much more than the comfort of lots of family. However, back in Ethiopia the concept of family is similar to Italy. Family members live very close to each other and often come to each other homes to drink coffee and simply talk to each other.
