If it is true - as it is - that Italian Americans have a lot of Italian culture in their DNA, one of the most obvious proofs is the role of women in the family. Both in Italy and in the Italian American community, women are the fundamental pillar of the family: but they are also very much more. Time passing and society evolving lead to a due, thoug...

October was Italian American History Month. Given that Christopher Columbus Day has become persona non grata because of radical, leftist Democrats, Italian American History Month does not garner the attention it so rightly deserves. While an admittedly biased Italian American, I am also aware of the significance in celebrating Italian Americans and...

Six months after the death of their son Beau in 2015, Jill Biden and then-Vice President Joe Biden could not bear the thought of going to Nantucket, Massachusetts, for the traditional Biden family Thanksgiving. It would have been -- she wrote in her 2019 memoir, "Where the Light Enters" -- "like a photograph with Beau's face cut out." Instead, she...

The smell of basil, oregano, and tomato bubbling on the stove are the memories of Italian food that Dr. Jill Biden has fondly described over the years. On Sundays, her parents and sisters piled into a station wagon and drove from Pennsylvania to New Jersey to feast on her Italian family’s cooking. Together, they filled their bellies with her grandm...

The tiny village of Gesso in Sicily is celebrating the victory of the next US president Joe Biden and the historic rise to the White House of a First Lady with Italian roots, whose ancestors hailed from here. Jill Jacobs Biden's grandfather, Domenico Giacoppo, was born in this remote, offbeat hamlet where only 500 people live amid fluorescent green...

Joseph R. Biden Jr. is the presumptive winner of the 2020 Presidential Election, after he secured 20 electoral votes by winning Pennsylvania on Saturday morning, The New York Times reports. But perhaps equally historic is the fact that his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, is set to become the first Italian American First Lady in our nation’s history. Her stor...

Most people are pretty familiar with Joe Biden, but you might not know much about his family, including Joe’s wife, Jill. I had the pleasure to speak with Jill Biden during an online Q&A on June 28.
