In line with the European and Italian migratory flows in particular, between the end of the 19th century and the early years of the 20th century, the Republic of San Marino witnessed a profound change in the choice of emigration destination. Even if the data regarding San Marino expatriates assume statistical significance only from 1923, year in which the passport replaces the expatriation card, it can nevertheless be argued that in this period the United States of America is becoming an important pole of attraction for the San Marino emigrants as well as for most European countries. If until the early 20th century, departures from San Marino to the United States are occasional and limited to a few units, from the first decade of the century the data becomes numerically more important: between 1905 and the outbreak of the First World War, always more Sammarinese chose to embark towards this land of hope.
