Early Italian Americans. We’re Talking Really Early…

Also known as the big pineapple- except it's a pinecone - close enough...

la Pigna, or the grand pinecone, is an Italian symbol of abundance, generosity, and welcome.

Early Italian Americans- I mean really early…

This is definitely worth reading, especially on July 4th.  I had no idea that there was any sort of Italian influence on American Independence.  Makes me feel a little extra proud today.

  1. To me as well Antonio- I find it fascinating that there is an Italian influence of this sort on the founding of the US. When I think of European encouragement I immediately think of France- nice to know Italy and Italians played a role too.

    Thanks for reading!
