Italians in America

A fascinating journey through history, from Cristoforo Colombo up to present-day contributions by noteworthy Italians overseas: Rudolph Giuliani, Nancy Pelosi, Mario Cuomo and many other Italian-Americans who have left their mark on the most powerful nation in the world. It is a cinematic voyage full of stories and memories to illuminate new generations as to the sacrifices and efforts of their forefathers in the land across the ocean.
