The Uniqueness of Italian-Americans

Discusses the unique ethnic culture of the Italian-Americans and how they have contributed to the American cutlure.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Italian immigrants began coming to America in ever-increasing numbers. For more than 100 years, they have been one of the most “visible” ethnic groups in this country and have firmly planted their seal of ethnicity in everything from their food to their intellectual achievements. Like all other ethnic groups, they have enriched the culture of America and contributed substantially to the diversity we know and love.
