    I just wanted to say thank you to this young man. I was born in Savona Italy and came to america 56 years ago this past June 29th. Yes the Italians took some of the dirtiest most disgusting jobs just to support their families and they would never think of welfare. If you said welfare to Grandfather he would have cracked you in the mouth. I also like the fact that as an Italian who was born in Italy I can legally say, “I’m an Italian American. My adoptive mother who was born here in America always said she was an American with Italian Descendants.

  3. I liked it and was moved by it. I knew many of this when growing up. My Father became an attorney in the early thirites in New York City.He was one of the very few who became a professional. There were a lot of others in the Brooklyn area of Bushwick in this time period. Some even becameJudges both in the Civil courts and the Supreme courtsd as well. All were not just blue collar as they saw a need to help the people who were being taken advantage of by not having the command of English. Thewy like other groups had their share of hardships. Thanks to them we have it better.

  4. I am third generation from Isola De Femme/Palermo. Our sister city was Pittsburg, California. My Nano Neno worked the at the Steel Mill. He was also a volunteer cop to assure everyone had their light’s off at night because of the war. I think it’s important to say how important it was to be Americanized for the Italian as well. My father (now deceased) didn’t speak Italian because it was important to assimilate.

  5. No matter how much time of your life you live out Italy, tradition never go away. Hope you like this little video I made just few weeks ago in Abruzzo Region enjoy
