Making Italian America

Wednesday, December 31 12:00 AM

 As embodied in fashion, film, food, popular music and sports, Italian American identities have fascinated, disturbed and influenced American and global culture. Historian and book editor Simone Cinotto will lead a group of scholars in a discussion of how consumption has shaped the culture and identity of Italians in America.


This event is free and seats are first-come, first-serve; however, you can reserve two seats with the purchase of Making Italian America. Contact Laura Lee at or 212.431.0233 ext. 259 to purchase a book.


Events take place at 103 Orchard Street at Delancey Street, unless otherwise noted. Seating is available on a first-come, first serve basis.
