About the Film: A visit to Little Italy. Sports greats like Joe DiMaggio. The voice of Frank Sinatra. The story of Italian-Americans, their achievements and visions is the story of America itself.

Since Christopher Columbus first landed on these shores, Italians have left their homeland to begin a new life in the New World. Italians in America uncovers their rich heritage and shares their stories of hope and heartache, oppression and liberation, bigotry and assimilation. Featuring historic photographs, rarely seen archival film footage, and interviews with prominent Italian-Americans including politician Geraldine Ferraro, actor Chazz Palminteri, and author Gay Talese, this is the definitive portrait of a community that has made America its own.
