Italian Heritage Month

Benvenuti! (Welcome!) Italian-American Heritage Month is an annual designation observed in October. During this time, we celebrate the Italian-American culture, and spread the word about the traditions that come with it. Italian-Americans have made many contributions to the U.S., especially in art, humanities and sciences. In 1880, Italians began migrating to the U.S. to flee rural poverty in Southern Italy and Sicily. Today, Americans of Italian descent are the nations fifth-largest ethnic group. This special heritage month was first celebrated in 1989 when it was proclaimed by President George H.W. Bush and the United States Congress to honor the achievements and contributions of Italian immigrants and their descendants living in the U.S.
