As each generation of Italian Americans dissolves further into the melting pot, it becomes more urgent to recognize the talents and gifts of their forebears. The pride of being Italian is something that is passed on from parent to child, and so this book is written by an Italian-American father and son, whose intention is to convey what is best and most noble in their heritage.

People of Italian descent have made major contributions to world culture in many fields, from science to entertainment, from art to automotive design. A mere listing of a few key names -- Marco Polo, Leonardo da Vinci, Antonio Stradivari, Maria Montessori, Luciano Pavarotti, Mario Cuomo, Sophia Loren, Frank Sinatra, Madonna -- begins to tell the story. It is a tale that is old and new, momentous and humorous, poignant and riveting.

This exploration of all things Italian presents its subjects in four sections: Food, People, Places, and Culture and History. The result is a combination tour guide, cookbook, historical and biographical record as well as a philosophical primer. The richness of this culture makes Italian Pride a joy to read and treasure to own.
