One of the most popular locations for the Americans who like to spend their free time in a wonderful place enjoying the sun and the nature of the east coast is Hilton Head Island, in South Carolina: one of the three American States where you can actually find a city named Italy (the other two are Texas and New York). Jokes apart, Italy is here too...

Looking for Italian traces all over the 50 States, this time we get back to Pennsylvania, the Keystone State: more precisely to Pittsburgh, Western Pennsylvania. One of the main concerns that several Italian American friends have told us is that young Italian Americans could feel their bound with their heritage in a different, slighter way. Well,...

As we're having a great time wandering all over the 50 States in search of Italian stories, our trip today stops by Portland, Oregon: we're far from the motherland, but that doesn't mean that there's no Italy, here in the Beaver State.   On the contrary, we're happy and grateful to meet our friend Tonya Russo Hamilton, who will help us understand...

Two of the five New York borroughs, Queens and Brooklyn, are not only part of New York, but also part of Long Island, at least officially: even so, usually when somebody refers to Long Island thinks about Nassau and Suffolk Counties, not the Queens or Kings (Brooklyn) County.   Long Island is home to many, many Italian Americans. One of them know...

The South East of the United States is an interesting area, where the state of Florida – the biggest and the most advanced in terms of economy and trade – is surely one of the most representative. Among its cities, Miami is undoubtedly the main one, because of a prosperous rate of tourism, finance, art, and, more generally, culture. In this pictur...

The theme of 'italianness' is very important for us of We the Italians, and, of course, for our readers: a community of people living in the U.S. who can be, depending on the case, either born in Italy, or in the States. However, the community we are talking about is even bigger, as it also includes other readers from Italy who are interested in th...

We will never state that Italy has to teach something to the United States, or vice versa: on the contrary, we think that, by combining their cultures, societies, and economic inheritances, the two can achieve winning goals, together. Nevertheless, this interview shows how an Italian woman has taught something to the United States, applying a metho...

In our journey between Italy in the US it's time we address one fundamental topic regarding the relationship that links our two countries: the Italian American cuisine. It is a delicate, important topic, and so we decided to interview somebody who has written a book about it.   Lee Casazza is the author of "Big Mamma's Italian-American Cookbook",...

Movies and TV series on trials and legal issues have long helped Italians learn about the criminal justice system in the United States. New York has only one Italian criminal defense lawyer. She is a brilliant, young woman from Bari who helps Italian and American citizens who are struggling with the intricacies of American law. Her name is Germana...

On the (virtual) road again, our trip around the US searching for Italian traces brings us today in Colorado. Again, not among the first States usually mentioned regarding the Italian emigration to the United States, but we will discover that there's a lot of Italy here too, starting from its motto that has its origin in Virgil's Aeneid: "Nil sine...

We don't know how many of you know this, but there is a thing called "Passport Index" which ranks the passports of the world, based on their Visa Free Score. The higher the Visa Free Score, the better the Passport Power Rank. Italy is ranked third : not bad, right? Still, this is not why so many Italian Americans apply for their Italian passport: a...

Los Angeles is one of the most significant cities in the United States. It houses one of the most active consulates, which is a point of reference for many Italian people.   We are pleased to host Consul Antonio Verde, who has been representing our country in LA for one year and a half.
