"I was born in San Francisco on the morning of June 24th, 1977. My name is Ursula. When I was young I didn?t like the name, people couldn?t pronounce it, ?What?s your name?? they?d ask me. It?s not a name you hear everyday, even in the states." In this book Ursula tells us about american culture and traditions, about her experiences in Italy and her dicision to remain there. This is part of the Mappamondo series where foreigners tell their stories of immigration and integration into the Italian culture.


"Sono nata a San Francisco nella mattina del ventiquattro giugno 1977. Mi chiamo Ursula. Da piccola non amavo il mio nome e le persone che mi conoscevano riuscivano a pronunciarlo a stento: what's your name??? - Ursula non Ŕ un nome che senti tutti i giorni, neanche negli Stati Uniti". In questo libro Ursula ci racconta la cultura e le tradizioni americane, l'incontro con la nostra cultura e la sua decisione di restare! Alla fine del volume le Mappapagine, come in tutta la collana I Mappamondi, ci offrono tante possibilitÓ per conoscere meglio il popolo americano.
