Italian American Immigration Books

Many people tend to think of America as a country that doesn’t really have its own distinct culture. However, what they fail to realize is that America is a perfect example of what you get when you seamlessly blend multiple cultural influences together.

Italian Americans, and the immigrants from whom they are descended, are an essential part of American history and culture for this reason. The choice to undertake a more serious study of Italian culture in America is the beginning of what is sure to be a fascinating adventure.

Exploring the Influence of Italians in America

We’re so familiar with some of the ways Italy and Italian immigrants have influenced our cultural identity as a nation that we sometimes tend to forget where they started. After all, what seems more “American” than taking the family out for an Italian staple like pizza?

However, it’s important to realize that we have a lot more for which to thank Italian Americans than the favorite foods we can’t imagine doing without in our lives. Italians were a huge part of the backstory of thousands of well-known American cities, including New York, Chicago, Detroit, and Los Angeles. Regional interest literature can help you explore each piece of the puzzle in rich, fascinating detail.
