  1. Beskrivelse

    Approximately 70,000 Italian immigrants arrived in the Port of New Orleans between 1898 and 1929. They brought with them a yearning, a hunger for the things they valued: bread, respect, fortune, security, beauty, justice, and drama.

      "Margavio and Salomone, both professors of sociology, have done an excellent job in depicting the gradual assimilation of Italians and their culture, from muffalettas and Roman Candy in New Orleans to Nick La Rocca's Original Dixieland Jazz Band and the activities of the Societa Italiana di Mutua Beneficenza Cefalutana. There are today hundreds of thousands of Italian Americans living in Louisiana and this book should be of interest to most of them."
      --Michael K. Smith, Louisiana Genealogical Register

      Approximately 70,000 Italians arrived at the Port of New Orleans between 1898 and 1929. They became farmers, landowners, and merchants. Yet, after immigrating to America to escape the physical hunger imposed by poverty in Italy, many still found themselves starved of the very things that most defined them as Italian: fortune, security, art, justice, religion, memory, bread, and respect.

      Using vignettes, family histories, census data, and other historical records, sociologists A. V. Margavio and Jerome J. Salomone provide a fascinating picture of how Italian culture shaped the lives of these immigrants. More importantly, the authors provide insight into the many ways that the immigrants' experiences in Louisiana modified the Old World values and culture they brought with them.
