The A. describes the presence of Italians in the Straits of Manacca between the 13th and the 18th centuries, when merchants and missionaries gathered there before moving on towards the lands of spices, or towards China and Japan. In the 19th century, Malacca fell into a decline because Singapore became a British colony and a flourishing free port, where some enterprising Italians also went to work, managing well to get into the commerce of colonial goods, but then they became such a small group of people that at the beginning of the 20th century they had to do without a consular representative. Now the Italian community amounts to 1,050 people, 20% of whom are permanent residants and 80% temporary. - (NF)
