INTERVIEWS  

There is a big heart that has been celebrating Italy, Christmas, children and the musical traditions of our country for almost twenty years in New York. It does so with commitment, courage, talent, and an infinite love and pride for its Italian roots. It is the heart of Cristina Fontanelli, artist, singer, producer, who every year in December organ...

UNICO (Unity, Neighborliness, Integrity, Charity, and Opportunity) is celebrating 100 years in 2022, and We the Italians wants to celebrate with all our Unicans friends. This is why we are happy to welcome a past President of UNICO National, Mr. Paul Alongi, who will help us know more about this historical family of Italian Americans that has been...

This interview is a little different from the others, because it concerns a project that was born from the collaboration between We the Italians and Zwan, a leading Reputation Assessment company in Italy. With Davide Ippolito, the protagonist of this interview, we decided to start the Italian American Reputation Lab, which will monitor the reputati...

"Nebraska: where the West begins" was a tourism slogan referring to the fact that the Cornhusker State (the name comes from the way corn, the state's main product, was commonly harvested, by "husking" it by hand) occupies the central portion of the Frontier Strip, that unbroken border line that bisects the United States from north to south, startin...

It is with much pride and great joy that we tell that a collaboration has been born that has led and will lead We the Italians to team up with a great institution, the Centro Studi Americani (Center for American Studies), the home of all Italians who love America, here in Rome. We take advantage of the interview that Director Roberto Sgalla granted...

The journey of discovering Italy in the United States has taken us and will continue to take us just about everywhere, but it is clear that the American state where there are the most people, institutions and events representing our country is New York. But New York is not just Manhattan, nor is it just the five boroughs that take the name New York...

Continuing our journey through the United States, we arrive in the northern part of the West Coast, in Washington State. We are a long way from Italy, but here too there are stories from the past, present and even the future that represent our country in its relationship with America. We talk about this with Elisabetta Valentini, Honorary Consul of...

In 2015 I attended my first National Italian American Foundation Gala in Washington, DC. Somewhat intimidated by the size of the venue, the 2,000 hosts in tuxedos or evening gowns, and the importance of those in attendance, I discovered that at my table were CEOs and managers of the highest caliber, with their respective spouses.  My surprise was g...

The willingness to donate, called "Give back" by the Americans, is especially important to the Italian American community, which unites with it the enormous heart carried by Italian DNA. And it is true that Americans, and particularly Italian Americans, have always shown a disposition and a desire to give back and donate to help preserve, restore a...

This interview is a collective one. Or maybe not. We’ll talk with a chef, a television star, a food historian, a culinary anthropologist and a Mediterranean Diet advocate. All in one person, a wonderful Italian American woman. Amy Riolo has such a beautiful and contagious smile, in a time when contagious is not a word we use lightly. Luckily for us...

I often realize how much my love for Italy has greatly increased since We the Italians was born, and therefore from the moment I started to tell those who live in America about my country. I found that it doesn't just happen to me. Luca Cottini is a fantastic Italian who teaches at Villanova University, in Pennsylvania. He perfectly embodies all th...

Italy continues to send our best diplomats to the United States, to represent our interests and excellence in the various American cities where there is an Italian Consulate.
