Description
The immigrant experience and cultural contribution of Italian Americans are celebrated here in a remarkable visual history, illustrated with 500 photographs, documents, and ephemera from the Library of Congress, many of them previously unpublished. We see how Italians lived in slums in Eastern cities, and worked the fields and mines of rural America. The book explores the accomplishments of such storied individuals as Fiorello LaGuardia, Vince Lombardi, and Martin Scorsese, and also rediscovers people like Giacomo Beltrami, who reached the sources of the Mississippi in 1823, and Joe Petrosino, the first Italian American police officer to lose his life fighting organized crime.
