INTERVIEWS  

Among the more than 300 festas that every year celebrate Italy in the US, a number that seems impossible but instead is real, today our interview will bring us to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Let's face it, this is not the first city that comes to our mind when we think about the American places of the Italian emigration: and probably it isn't even in the...

Gli italiani che vivono negli Stati Uniti hanno votato, come noi che viviamo in Italia, per le elezioni dello scorso febbraio. Tanti candidati, tutti mossi dal grande amore per l'Italia, divisi in formazioni politiche a volte identiche a quelle che si fronteggiavano in Italia, a volte diverse: in una circoscrizione elettorale gigantesca che compren...

What comes to mind when you hear the words "New Mexico?" Perhaps it's Mexican food, or chili ristras, or Southwest adobe style – in short, something to do with Hispanic heritage. But not for Rosalba Maniaci who, since 2009, has served as Corrispondente Consolare for the Italian Consulate of Los Angeles. Instead when Rosalba thinks "New Mexico," she...

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...

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.

L'Italian Business & Investment Initiative è un progetto che da un paio di anni, a dispetto di quanto male il nostro amato Paese si possa fare, si batte per raccontare l'Italia migliore, per sostenere i nostri meriti, per dare - a chi si deprime pensando di essere italiano – un punto di vista diverso, motivato, volenteroso. Non sorprende che sia un...

As we already did with music, radio, religion, cinema, sport, literature, theater, consumerism and cuisine, today we analyze the relationship between Italy and the United States from the point of view of another fundamental paradigm for the last century: television.   We do this with a young Italian talent, Luca Martera: scholar, writer, director...

We rarely have true celebrities, admired and well known both in Italy and the US, in this column. We have met more than a hundred wonderful persons during this trip, from all of whom I learned a lot about so many interesting topics: people successful, dedicated, but today a true celebrity is with us. Still, she has welcomed us with the simplicity a...

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...

Incontriamo John Viola a Washington, nella sede della NIAF. Fuori ci hanno accolto le due bandiere a noi più care, che simbolizzano ciò che da quasi 40 anni fa la National Italian American Foundation. Parliamo con un Presidente di 29 anni, e non possiamo non essere curiosi: il paragone con cosa accade in Italia è improponibile. Dobbiamo confessare...

Movies are a wonderful way to tell stories, and in the US many millions of people – either of Italian heritage or not – love to be told stories about and from Italy. That is why cinema is one of the most important tool of the promotion of our culture in America. Every year, hundreds of events involve the showing of an Italian movie somewhere in th...

Radio is a friend to carry with you everywhere: it keeps us company, informs us, entertains us. For the Italian-American community, for a long time it also has been a fantastic way to keep alive their link with Italy. The guest of our interview today is Tony Pasquale, who has been for many years a friendly presence via radio for many Italian Ameri...
