  • La Scuola D’Italia will honor New York State’s former First Lady, Matilda Cuomo, and Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and CEO, Stefano Domenicali, at its annual gala on March 2, 2018 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.
  • 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.
  • On occasion of the Settimana della Lingua italiana nel mondo, The Association of Italian American Educators assembled an intimate gathering on Monday night to reflect on the promotion of the Italian culture in the United States. The event was held during the 17th annual “Settimana della Lingua italiana nel mondo,” which aims to promote the Italian language and culture on an international scale. Guest speakers that night included actor and producer Tony Lo Bianco and distinguished Italian-American studies scholar Dr. Vincenzo Milione.
  • Far away from the conference’s usual home base, Campania in Southern Italy, LSDM came to New York for the second year to celebrate Italian culture and gastronomy on June 28 and 29. On day two, Matilda Cuomo was pulled from the crowd and took the chance to talk about the New York State Mentoring Program, a cause very close to her heart.

  • The John D. Calandra Italian American Institute celebrates the publication of Forty Years of Italian American Civil Service Employment in New York City and New York State to honor generations of achievement by Italian Americans in government jobs from the ‘80s to today.
  • Let’s talk about generations. About generations who talk to one another. Our first conversation – aired on TV and partly available online – is between Matilda Cuomo and Amanda Cole. Their extraordinary talk touches upon everything from immigration to religion, from language to cooking and traveling in Italy, and culminates in an emotional and for us unscripted moment when grandmother and granddaughter decide to read a letter written in 1999 by Governor Mario Cuomo (Amanda’s grandfather and father of the current governor, Andrew), a kind of spiritual last will and testament for his thirteen grandchildren.
  • An established lawyer and an active member of the Italian-American community, Linda Carlozzi tells us about her family roots, how she discovered nIAF, and what’s like to be a woman in a predomi- nantly male world.

    The peacemaking services of Francis of Assisi have always been needed in the Big Apple, which presents glaring evidence of inter-group fear, hostility and potential for violence. No ethnic group has been immune. Italian Americans have often been in the middle of these conflicts as both victims and victimizers.
