In honour of Garibaldi who strongly advocated the inclusion of "Nizza" into Italy.
Unity in Diversity
Because Nice is situated on the Côte d'Azur, and is very close to neighbouring Italy, it receives a large influx of immigrants from all over the world. These diverse groups of people contribute to the growth of Nice's Global Culture.
A few of the major immigrant groups are from Tunisia, Morocco, and Algeria across the Mediterranean, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Vietnam and Laos, but these are estimates since the French National Government does not collect data regarding race or ethnicity to uphold the French values of Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité.
This diversity makes Nice a lively melting pot of cultures, languages and food.
