Among incomprehensible duties and wonderful excellences, the export of Italian wine to the United States proceeds not without difficulty, but also with great pleasure of Italian producers and American consumers. Today we welcome Giancarlo Gariglio, curator of the Slow Wine guide: the ideal tool to get to know and appreciate Italian wine, which this...

One of the greatest concerns of the leaders of the Italian American community scattered throughout the United States is to try to involve the younger generations. American kids of Italian origin grow up with the teachings of their families, but time passing from the era of mass migration inevitably makes it more difficult to celebrate the Italian h...

The stories of the successful Italians in Silicon Valley have a meaning that goes far beyond the simple yet wonderful description of our compatriots who see their talent recognized in the most innovative and competitive environment in the world. These stories convey that innovation and competition are perfectly combined with Italianism, and for thi...

What unites all the people I have had the good luck to interview is their relationship with an aspect of the marriage between Italy and America. Everyone experiences it from a different point of view, on this or that side of the ocean, and for We the Italians it is nice to meet people who are different in culture, sex, age, experience, tastes and v...

Last October, during the visit of the President of the Italian Republic Sergio Mattarella to the White House, President Donald Trump said the following words: "The United States and Italy are bound together by a shared cultural and political heritage dating back thousands of years to Ancient Rome.” An uproar broke out, because some people wanted to...

Many times my interviews have given light to people and institutions born in America who work to help Italy, improve the bridge between our two countries, and represent in an excellent way an aspect - territorial, thematic, professional or cultural - of being part of the Italian American community. The friend who is today the protagonist of this in...

Italian exports to the United States are growing, but we can do better, really much better. It's one of our goals here at We the Italians, to help Italian products arrive and be bought by Americans, not just those of Italian heritage, who are obviously the first ambassadors of Made in Italy. Food is for sure the first sector we think about: Italy i...

There are many episodes in the history of the United States that have seen Italians as protagonists. Some are very well known; others deserve to be known better. The subject of this interview is of the second type: not many people know about this, but it is really very interesting and tells how much since their birth the United States - and its lea...

As every year, on the occasion of the second Monday of October and of the celebrations of Columbus Day, We the Italians publishes an interview dedicated to Christopher Columbus. It's one of the ways we have to keep the focus on a theme that we care a lot about, which is also the only one on where we strongly and openly take sides on: defending Colo...

It's always interesting and fun to discover new stories, particular and unknown to me, about something beautiful and winning in the history of the Italian American community. Often these stories are about sport, which in America has seen the triumph of many Italian American champions. Today's story concerns 7 (SEVEN!) golfing brothers who filled th...

The history of the Italian emigrants who left for America is often a history of difficulties, suffering and accidents. Often these accidents occurred in shameful and almost impossible work situations, which were the only ones left for the latest arrivals, the Italians willing to do anything to survive and allow their children to have a better educa...

Among the Italians who have been successful thanks to the United States there are undoubtedly the names of Antonio Meucci and Giuseppe Garibaldi. A scientist, the first; a warrior, the second. Nothing further from each other. But few people know that Meucci and Garibaldi not only knew each other, but they shared a house and some adventures together...
