 With the help of my friend Pleurat Citaku I got some informations about Albanians-Arbëresh of Chile.

We are talking about a state of South America or Latin America - Chile, a state created after the Spanish colonization in the 16th century, where the old Inca lived - an autochthonous population.

Like everywhere else in the world, here live Arbëresh of Italy who are know for their roots - since the Ottoman invasion of Albania after the death of Skanderbeg, 500 years ago. The exact number of Arbëresh living in Chile is uknown untill now.

This time I will reveal four famous Arbëreshes in the World from Chile.

1. Cecilia Bolocco was born in May, 1965, actress, Miss Universe 1987 of Chile and the World.
