As is often the case in the United States, the capital of California is not the largest city, and in this case not even the second largest. Sacramento is home to the California government, and also to a very active center of Italian culture, really very committed to promoting every aspect of our country. So, we welcome our guests in this new interv...

There are projects in the Italian American world that are not connected to one local community, but rather contain them all, telling a particularly important theme that has characterized throughout the United States the stories of our compatriots. The protagonist of this interview is Raymond Guarini, a fantastic and very proud Italian American wh...

We begin 2023 with an interview that is particularly dear to me. Those who know me know how much I cherish the history and celebration of American war efforts and the heroes who under the Star-Spangled Banner helped liberate many countries, starting with Italy. The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is a wonderful institution tha...

Un ponte di musica. Itinerari dell’Opera italiana in America is a beautiful book edited by Claudio Orazi, now Superintendent of the Teatro Carlo Felice in Genoa after having led some of Italy's most important opera houses: the Sferisterio in Macerata, the Arena in Verona, the Teatro Verdi in Trieste and the Teatro Lirico in Cagliari.

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.

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 talk about this with Elisabetta Valentini, Honorary Consul of...
