Just like last year, We the Italians decided that also in 2023 we wanted to name the Italian American of the year. Last year there was little time to survey all our 100,000 newsletter subscribers, and we asked the members of our team. Stanley Tucci was the 2022 winner. This year we asked all of you, and we had a great response!

This year too we decided not to make a shortlist within which to choose. We left it free to vote. Putting together all the 7,845 votes we received, the podium for the Italian American of 2023 is as follows. Number three is the late Tony Bennett, who left us this year after a wonderful Italian American life and career. Number two is Lidia Bastianich, the most popular Italian chef in the US. Number one, the Italian American of 2023 according to you all, is Sylvester Stallone, the Italian stallion.

Thanks to all of you who voted, Merry Christmas and best wishes for a happy and healthy 2024. Two flags, lots of hearts. Thank you and congratulations to Sylvester Stallone!
