  • Ten vicious shootings of migrants and Roma in Italy have left one man dead and a baby at risk of paralysis. For this "huge increase in cases of violence and racism," Italy is under investigation by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights of Man.
  • With the Ferragosto holiday just two weeks away, Italians are relaxing into vacation mode on beaches and in the mountains, but also at home -- and indeed especially at home. As the research institute Dempolis statistics show, one out of five Italians is vacating, so to speak, at home, while at least half are going no farther afield than their own region. Resorts and even big city parks are jam packed, and not only with the multitude of foreign tourists who prefer holidaying in Italy to some of its more turbulent neighbors.
  • Elena Perazzini interviewed more than 30 Italians before deciding on seven for her book, 'Via da Noi, Away from Us’.

The whole lifestyle may seem shallow or strange to some, but “authentic” Italian-American life does not have to revolve around formal language, Renaissance art or the opera. This is indeed a subculture that is very complex and needs exploration—not shunning and shame. There can be civil discussions about all these differences, but there should never be any mean-spirited debates on which is right or wrong.
