    Fresh off the G train to the Bronx - you have just landed in Italy. Given that a “Little Italy” already exists in N.Y.C. the Bronx, and in particular the Arthur Avenue area, should really deserve to be appointed the city’s “Big Italy.” The Arthur Avenue Retail Market offers some of the best and most authentic Italian food products in town. The very heart of this retail realm is Davids Greco’s “Mike’s Deli,” a place permeated with history, folklore and a religious commitment to quality.
  • Two months of intense organizational efforts from i-Italy between Naples and New York, a great collaboration with the Consulate General and the other institutions of Sistema Italia, enthusiastic and generous support from all sectors of the community. These ingredients made for the success of the mayor of Naples Luigi De Magistris’ trip to New York. Street encounters in the Little Italies of Manhattan and the Bronx, conferences in the two major university institutes, meetings with entrepreneurs and tourism agencies – and a great human connection with mayor Bill de Blasio. At the center of it all, an atypical and unexpected Naples, the emblem of an inclusive city, which volunteers alongside New York to jumpstart an international movement towards the globalization of the rights to citizenship – a globalization of humans, not just of capital and merchandize.
  • On October 23, Mary Sansone, Monsignor John A. Ruvo, Patricia Santangelo, and Anthony J. Tamburri were recognized as prominent members of the Italian-American community in the United States. For the occasion, the Arthur Avenue market became an Italian piazza where the whole neighborhood gathered and cheered.
