Carlo Calenda is the Italian Vice Minister for the Economic Development, and this is his first experience in politics. This column is not used to interview Italian political figures, but we perceive him as someone who is completely different from the Italian political standard. He is young and competent; he has already played an important role in t...

No art more than cinema has helped to shape the relationship between Italy and the United States. Cinema has been for the relationship between the two countries a fundamental vehicle of cultural exchange, an imaginative means of historical and social description, and a very strong device of communication and mutual influence. Cinema is also one of...

The discovery of traces of Italy in the vast American territory brings us today to somebody who can describe us the combination between Italy and New Mexico. Davide Arminio is an enterprising young Italian journalist, who has already been published in Italy and won a major journalism prize, who tells us about his experience as a young intern in Alb...

The Italian American Community gives us the opportunity to meet versatile men and women: very successful persons on their job, who also serve some Italian institutions with passion and dedication, proudly giving their time and their experience for the best interest of Italy in the USA. Our guest for the first interview of 2014 is definitively one o...

There is a major city in the United States where the history of Italian emigration, very interesting and full of content, is undoubtedly embodied by a personality, universally recognized and appreciated. That city is Chicago, and the person who has been studying for a long time the Italian emigration and presence there, is Dominic Candeloro. We me...

When you think about the models of young Italian Americans in the show business world, you sadly end up admitting that the most famous are the shameful boys and girls of Jersey Shore.

The United States have many Little Italy, not only in the larger and most famous cities.

In describing the protagonists of different aspects of the relationship between Italy and the United States, we often met young successful (at least, young by the Italian standards), other times prominent managers or entrepreneurs, or institutional representatives. The person we interview today combines in himself all these three aspects, together...

One of the main sectors of Made in Italy's excellence is design. We are historically leaders in this field: we, the Italians, have in our dna the mixture required to be the best in designing things, and in realizing them in the proper way.

Broadway is one of the most famous and sparkling iconographic representations of the American leadership in the world. It is "the myth" for every actor, screenwriter, director, choreographer: for anyone who dreams of being part of the show business. In Broadway, Italy is not very much represented: unlike other areas in which Italian Americans have...

If the American Dream has always meant "to make it" on one's own merits, if millions of Italians went to America first for survival and then for success, if the result of the work of our fellow citizens has always been admired in the U.S., the union between Italian entrepreneurs and the United States cannot but constitute an important part of our j...
