Even though we at the Italian American Podcast spend A LOT of time together, every once in a while, our adventures around Italian American life take us to distinct destinations. Like any group of best buds, we look forward to reuniting and catching up, so this time, we thought we would share that conversation with you!
In this week’s episode, John, Pat, and Rossella reunite to share their latest adventures and what their experiences taught them all about their Italian American lives and identities.
Rossella talks about what it’s like being Italian in a place that’s not necessarily known for its Italian culture as she shares a recent visit to Vancouver Island in the Canadian Rockies to meet her family’s newest member, while Pat shares stories from his visit to Jessup, Pennsylvania, for La Corsa dei Ceri and what it means to get a whole town involved with celebrating Italian heritage.
John discusses his most recent trip to Italy, where he visited Campania, Abruzzo, and Rome, and how the country’s tourist landscape has changed dramatically since it reopened after the pandemic, and what overtourism can mean for destinations as they seek to solidify their bottom line.
It’s an episode that unpacks a lot about heritage, travel, food, and all of the things that make us who we are!
