"I prefer Norway to Sweden, you can find more African food." This is Charles talking to me in the streets of Oslo. He considers himself to be Swedish as he flew from Nigeria to the Scandinavian country 16 years ago.

In the last month he has been living in the Anker Hostel, right behind Grønland in Oslo, where is currently looking for a job.

Grønland is the multicultural neighborhood in Oslo. Situated on the east side of the river Akerselva, it started to host migrants from the ’60s.

Some believes the quarter is now more populated by Muslims than in the past, as the majority of residents are from Pakistan and Somalia.

On a five-million population, Norway has 11,4% people coming from foreign countries. The largest ethnic group being Pakistani Norwegians.


"Preferisco la Norvegia alla Svezia, si trova più cibo africano." Charles mi racconta di lui per le strade del centro di Oslo. Dopo aver passato 16 anni in Svezia si considera svedese nonostante sia originario della Nigeria.

Attualmente Charles è alla ricerca di un lavoro. Nell’ultimo mese ha vissuto nell’ostello Anker, dietro al quartiere chiamato Grønland.

Grønland è il quartiere multiculturale di Oslo. Situato sul lato orientale del fiume Akerselva, ha iniziato a ospitare migranti sin dagli anni ’60.

Qualcuno ritiene che il quartiere oggi sia più popolata da musulmani rispetto al passato, considerato che la maggior parte dei residenti provengono dal Pakistan e la Somalia.

Con una popolazione cinque milioni di abitanti, il 11,4% di persone in Norvegia proviene da paesi stranieri. Il più grande gruppo etnico è quello pakistano.
