From the early Italian adventurers who played an important role in the European expansion across the Atlantic to the political and business leaders of the 1990s, this book tells a dramatic story. The heart of the story is the mass migration that took place between 1880 and 1924, when a whole culture left its ancient roots to settle in the cities and towns of America.
Ben Morreale, professor emeritus of history at SUNY Plattsburgh, is coauthor of "La Storia: Five Centuries of the Italian American Experience." Morreae served as a consulting historian for the Arts and Entertainment program on Italian Americans.
