As part of our series ITALIAN AMERICANS: MORE THAN 200 YEARS IN THE MAKING, dedicated to exploring the history and heritage of the millions of Italians who emigrated to the United States and demystifying stereotypes, we are delighted to announce our 3rd talk: Italian Immigrant Cuisine in the United States: A History of Food and Diaspora, live from Italy with Prof. Simone Cinotto. Presented in English.

Food was at the center of the lives of Italian immigrants in the United States and their children in the early twentieth century. From generational conflicts resolved around the family table to a vibrant food-based economy of ethnic producers, importers, and restaurateurs, food was essential to the creation of an Italian American identity. Italian American foods offered not only sustenance but also powerful narratives of community and difference, tradition and innovation as immigrants made their way in American society, in the process inventing in the New World a widely popular Italian cuisine that did not exist yet in their country of origin.

Join us on Saturday, November 5th, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM (Doors: 10:30 AM) at ICC. Prof. Simone Cinotto will connect remotely from Italy (presented in English) with ICC members and friends listening together from our location in the vibrant North Loop neighborhood of Minneapolis.
