Italian American Football Players
Italian Americans have played a big part in American Football. I have compiled a list of players of Italian heritage that have played pro football. I am sure this list is not complete, but you will get a good sense of just how many players of Italian heritage have taken part in this American past time.

Return to Campobasso
I was always familiar with the name Campobasso because Campobasso was the home frequently mentioned by my grandfather. My grandfather came to America through Ellis Island on October 24, 1913. Pasquale was sixteen years old when he came to America following his two older brothers Giuseppe and Giovanni. Unfortunately, none of the brothers ever returned to Campobasso or ever saw their family nor did they ever get the opportunity to speak to them again. Lately I realized that it had to be very difficult and devastating for everyone in the Casertano family in Italy. Robert shares his story as he visited Campobasso and was able to reconnect with family.

Columbus: Quite a Character!
A crisp fall breeze is upon us and the kids are back in school, which means I, an Italian American reporter, have Columbus Day on the brain. It’s like Christmas or the Super Bowl for Italian America. There are star-studded parades, events, and an entire month devoted to Italian American heritage all because of the mythic explorer Christopher Columbus, better known to Italians as Cristofero Colombo.

Cristoforo Colombo
Learn more about the life of Christopher Columbus by reading this 12 chapter e-text version written by Giancarlo v. Nacher Malvaioli. This is an Italian translation of his book, which was initially written in Spanish.

Re – discovering Columbus Day
This federal holiday has more to offer than we may think – it gives Italian families another excuse to celebrate our heritage. Since 1866, Italian-Americans have used Columbus Day to celebrate both America and our Italian passion for discovery. Today, these sentiments still exist, as do the Italian-Americans who feel them. It seems the only thing missing is the celebration. This places the responsibility (yet again) on the Italian-Americans of our generation to preserve our innate passion for life.

What American Foods to Make for Your Italian Family and Friends
American foods are actually more popular than you’d imagine in Italy. Most of the people are foodies by American standards. Preparing meals, gathering family and friends and the table, and perfecting regional specialties are big parts of the culture. As a result, many Italians enjoy trying new dishes. When they find out your American (or Canadian or Brazilian or Australian), they want to know what’s on your menu.

The Value of Drafting an Italian Will
Although, generally speaking, Italy recognizes the validity of international Wills, under the Italian Law all foreign Wills must be authenticated by an Italian Public Notary before executing the probate. The Notary will not publish or legalize Wills drafted in a foreign language (and governed by different legal jurisdictions) in Italy unless translated by a professionally certified translator. It is nonetheless advisable for a non-Italian citizen to draft an Italian Will if she/he owns properties (house or land) on Italian territory.

When the sun sets on summer, the people of Ischia, a small island off the coast of Naples, begin preparing for the vendemmia or grape harvest. Many families and friends invite each other to their vineyards and host a lunch, often served at long harvest tables or as a picnic. But before breaking bread, the guests and hosts work side by side to cut the grapes off the vines for wine making.

In addition, times have changed from when many of our ancestors actually lived in Italy. So, our perceptions aren’t quite timely.

In Italy, people consider the summer, especially August with its vacation days and Ferragosto celebration, magical. No one would take that away from children (or adults for that matter) with reminders of the impending school year. It would be sacrilege. Despite this, however, the kids do have summer homework that is not for the faint of heart. Somehow, though, the students still manage to spend their days on the beach without a care in the world, and they get their homework done, too, even if it’s completed as they walk into school on the first day back.

How Italy’s Young People Celebrate Summer
As an American, the last time I had a carefree summer vacation with nothing more to do than watch TV, read books (probably more likely magazines back then), go shopping, or sit on the beach was when I was 15. It was the last time I had no summer job or internship. Often, I am nostalgic for those days, which were filled with ice pops, dips in the pool, and movie nights with friends that often ended with us waxing philosophical under the stars on someone’s terrace. And it makes me jealous of my Italian friends and family, who indulged in the lazy days of summer for far longer than I ever did.
