INTERVIEWS  

You know that sometimes in these interviews I have the pleasure of knowing leaders of Italian and Italian American communities throughout the United States. Today my personal tour of America takes me to the North Star State, Minnesota, where I meet Sandra Gengler. Born and raised in Ancona, in the Marche region, she moved to the US to attend colleg...

These are difficult times for Italian Americans, but maybe they always have been. Ever since they arrived, Italians who emigrated to America have very often been treated with contempt, and have worked very hard to earn the respect that is due to them, sacrificing their lives, giving hard work and talent and beauty and excellence to the United State...

For 7 years I have been dealing with everything that is Italian American on a daily basis, and by now I have learned to recognize when a name comes back often, involved in many things: that is a leader of the community in which he/she lives and works. This is what happens in the Italian American community in Chicago: if there is music or the celebr...

Italian emigration to America at the end of the XIX and beginning of the XX Century is rightfully the predominant one when dealing with the theme of the Italian diaspora in the United States and more generally in the Americas. Numerically impressive, that emigration is by narrative and description "THE" emigration. But it is not the only time that...

We the Italians hate racism and condemns with all possible severity the murder of George Floyd by four policemen who abused their authority and disgraced the uniform they wear. That said, and reiterated with all possible strength and conviction, we stand with those wearing a uniform, which in the vast majority defend the weakest and protect the inn...

Here at We the Italians we’ve been thinking that science and research are two fundamental and very delicate aspects of our lives way before the covid-19 virus hit the whole world: here at We the Italians we believe that science and research are extremely serious and complicated things, that require studies, talent and sweat, and we are therefore gr...

The world has seen a video in which for 8 minutes and 46 seconds a human being held his knee on the neck of another human being, and killed him, with the complicity of three other human beings. It wasn't a movie, it wasn't a TV show, it wasn't a play. It was unfortunately the truth, the reality, life and death that had been repeated for too long in...

The podcast is more and more now an effective, new, fun communication tool. You can listen to it on any device, and in the world of Italian Americans there are now many different ones. Even We the Italians started his, first in video and then also in audio. The first podcast of the Italian-American world was born a few years ago. I was lucky enough...

Every year, either on April 25 or Memorial Day, We the Italians visit Nettuno's Sicily-Rome American Cemetery to celebrate and pay respect to the American soldiers who helped liberate Italy. Last June 4, We the Italians laid a wreath at the cemetery on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Rome. It is a sacred place of peace and...

As a great lover of New York, a few years ago I started to notice a particular character on social media, unique in his way of talking about the city that fascinates me so much. I contacted him, and we met, and we became friends. One year we also walked in the Columbus Day Parade together. His name is Piero Armenti, and today he is a real star. Ten...

In these dangerous and tiring days, when the two countries we all love are the most affected in the world by this horrendous virus, many of us look with concern at what will happen when the health emergency will be over, or at least mitigated. It will be a very difficult time, our economies are and will be hard hit. Many people have compared the pe...

This interview with Charles Marsala, who is bringing great news to the world of the Italian American community in New Orleans and throughout the South East, was done right before the coronavirus pandemic broke out in Italy, and then a couple of weeks before it also arrived in the United States. It is therefore a picture of the world before the coro...
