A Look at the Real Italian Culture: The Italian Americans Airs on PBS

February 16th, 2015

Get inspired for the upcoming Feast of Saint Mark Italian Food Festival with an inside look at the Italian culture, right here in America!

Italian Americans

Often times, when people think of Italians, images come to mind of “tough guys”  or grandmothers hovering over a stove top stirring tomato sauce. Hollywood movies and popular television series don’t help in changing these age-old stereotypes.

For a realistic, inside view into Italian culture, don’t miss The Italian Americans airing on PBS February 17th at 9 p.m. This production reveals how Italian immigrants challenged the notion of the American “melting pot” — chronicling four generations of Italian-American lives, from the massive late 19th Century wave of immigration to today.
