Review "Passionate... Readers become hopelessly engrossed... absolutely essential...it is a resource of rare historical and contemporary relevance." - Emily T. Gear, Director Garibaldi-Meucci Museum, NYC --Garibaldi-Meucci Museum (NY, NY)

"Until you read the whole book, you'll never get a sense of the immense impact the Italian mind has had on...the world." - Professor Fred Gardaphe, Ph.D. Director, Italian-American Studies Program, Stony Brook University, NY Former President, American Italian Historical Association --"Fra Noi" Magazine (Chicago, IL)

From the Publisher This book combines two decades of careful research with an occasional dash of humor and personal commentary that makes it both fascinating and a delight to read. It is very comprehensive and has been called "the bible of Italian culture and heritage" by experts on the subject (read the many online editorial reviews). It is a must for anyone interested in Italian and Italian-American heritage. The book's comprehensive treatment of history and events renders it universally appealing since the author often provides a context of other contributing cultures and peoples.
This book also includes a unique `Italy Travel Guide' supplement that combines history and attractions for over twenty cities and locations in Italy.
