Ciao. We are super excited to launch The Italian American Podcast! The first podcast dedicated to helping Italian Americans share and learn about their Italian heritage.
I know that I come from mid-20th century America, urban, specifically downtown New York, specifically an Italian-American area, Roman Catholic – that’s who I am. And a part of what I know is there’s a decency to people who tried to make a living in the kind of world that was around us and also the Skid Row area of the Bowery; it impressed me.” – Martin Scorsese
“There is nothing like growing up in an Italian American family.” – Dolores Alfieri (tweet this)
