By Cecilia Gragnani, special guest Jonny Woo, editor Gabriele Carrer | LONDON EXPAT is the comic story of the encounter between a modern migrant and London – a contemporary El Dorado craved by generations of young Italians. Millions of European citizens arrive in the British capital to realise the future they dream of.

The podcast explores the long road to becoming a citizen in another country, embracing a new nationality whilst staying true to your roots, and the existential crisis that your identity faces when no country claims you as their own. From amusing miscommunications to bewildering legal technicalities, through Brexit’s threat and the latest Coronavirus emergency, Cecilia delves into the day-to-day of living in a country and a city where turning ones desires into reality becomes a titanic endeavour as the European dream of life across borders seems to slowly drift away.

In her exploration Cecilia interacts with the Spirit of London, interpreted by the Drag Queen Jonny Woo, and uses as a guideline the book “Life in the UK”, an element that identifies British bureaucratic obtuseness, a compulsory read for aspiring citizens but little known even by the native English people. The story is accompanied by direct testimonies of many expats who have tried, have succeeded or have given up.
