  • Our congratulations to Linda R Carlozzi, for making Crain's NY's list of 100 Leading Women Lawyers in NYC! She is a Principal in the New York City, New York, office of Jackson Lewis P.C. She joined the firm in 1997 and focuses her practice on traditional labor law. Besides being an accomplished professional, Linda is a leading member of the Italian-American community; she serves on the Board of Directors of the National Italian American Foundation, NOIAW Member and is the Chairwoman of the Italian Welfare League. To celebrate, we chose to republish our feature story about her extraordinary life. In this piece, Linda tells us about her family roots, how she discovered NIAF, and what’s like to be a woman in a predominantly male world. She also reflects on changing perceptions of Italian-American culture both in the US and in Italy; and offers her take on what should be done to strengthen mutual understanding among Italians across the ocean.

    Over the next several months, I will be presenting the book Italian Folk in venues throughout the New York metropolitan area.
  • In a recent i-Italy article, “Fighting the Good Fight”, Italophile lamenting about AP Italian continues. But, for Philo-Italian Americana, the “Better Fight” would be over the non-existence of Italian American history and culture in our public schools, colleges and universities.
