New Book Explores the Mark Italians Have Made on Columbus

More Info on This Book: Columbus Italians

The newest addition to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America series is Columbus Italians from local authors Andy Dominianni and Erin Dominianni. The book boasts more than 200 vintage images and memories of days gone by.

At the beginning of the last century, there were just over 11,000 Italians in Ohio. While many of the earliest immigrants settled along Lake Erie, a growing number ventured south to the state capital, a city located at the confluence of the Scioto and Olentangy Rivers and named for a famed Italian explorer.

Importing the rich traditions of the old country, Columbus Italian families stayed close to each other, living in great concentrations on St. Clair Avenue and in the Flytown and Bottoms neighborhoods, Grandview Heights, Marble Cliff, and San Margherita. The generations of families who once called these Italian enclaves home have now largely dispersed but still form a community—colorful, hardworking, and fiercely loyal—bonded by the three most basic principles of Italian culture and the theme of the Columbus Italian Festival: “Faith, Family, and Friends.”

Highlights of Columbus Italians:
• Faith
• Family
• Friends

Available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at www.arcadiapublishing.com or
