Stunning Revelations

By Dee

Comments about PBS The Italian Americans DVD:

An excellent history of the Italian Americans in the US. I never knew how badly they were treated when they came here for the first time.

Interesting all the way through. I also have the DVD which is excellent.

Lots of Pasta

By Ed the History Buff

from San Diego, CA

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS The Italian Americans DVD:

Enlightening, especially the part about New Orleans which was entirely new to me. It's my feeling that Italian Americans have been totally integrated into American society. In spite of the popularity of "The Godfather" the typical American does not taint Italians with the Mafia reputation. I am not Italian

Eyeopening experience of the Italian Immigrant experience!

By DSR

from Winthrop, MA

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS The Italian Americans DVD:

I'm of Italian descent on both sides. My father was from Calabria, and my mother's father and mother were from Abruzzi. However, this film series cast light on much of what my parents and grandparents experienced.

Specifically, as a young child, I can remember specific conversations about Mussolini's bad decision to align with the Germans and talk of Sacco and Vensetti. It was only when I saw this wonderful film that I understood a little better what it might have been like leaving your homeland and coming to the US and try to assimilate as best one can.

I bought one for my son too. Felt he should know a little about his Italian heritage.
