Italian American Heritage Preservation

Italian Flags Ellis Island American Flag


The Italian-American Heritage Preservation section is dedicated to Italian people who have immigrated to this great country and who made considerable contributions and sacrifices in making this country what it is today. Each story is unique, each story is filled with hope, struggles and dreams and each story should be told.

That’s why this section has been created. To tell the stories of Italian-Americans who came here with nothing but the hope of building a better life for their families.

Tell us about your family. How they settled here , where they settled. What part of Italy did they come from? Tell us about their hopes, their struggles and their dreams. Here’s the perfect opportunity to reflect on your ancestry and preserve those memories that can not be re-lived except in our minds. Leave something for other generations of your family to reflect on and learn who they really are and where they came from.

Italian American Heritage Preservation

Stories written could be either one paragraph or one page. If not an immigration story, a special family moment is fine. A wedding story, or a baptism or communion story, a special dinner story or an accomplished family member story. Any memory that brings a smile to your face.

It's free and easy to do. Just fill out the form below adding your story and any photos you have. The page will be edited and automatically created on our site.

Thank You,

For all my friends in Wisconsin there is a great Italian- American organization which helps promotes and preserves our heritage. Wisitalia’s mission is to promote and encourage the teaching of the Italian language, and the culture of Italy, in Wisconsin's primary and secondary schools, as well as in its post secondary colleges and universities and to educate the general public about the Italian language and culture.
