    Qualcuno saprebbe dirmi come si dice "nuovi ricchi"? (il contesto e' la societa' di fine Ottocento, dove alcuni membri delle classi alte provenivano da famiglie di semplici lavoratori poi arricchitisi)
    Grazie! :)

    You could use the French phrase, nouveau riches... I don't know if there's an English translation.

    I didn't know about the French expression... It'll do perfectly.
    Thanks outsider and Parergon!

    The French expression is common English phrase, but make sure the words agree. So... "nouveau riche" or "nouveaux riches" not "nouveau riches".
