William Marchione speaking on Italian-American Immigration

Italian-Americans in the Greater Boston Area: BeginningsWilliam Marchione, teacher, author and President of the Brighton Historical Society presents the history of the early Italian experiences in the Boston area. Mr. Marchione will trace the role Italians played in the life of Boston from earliest times down to 1910. The main themes will include the changing attitudes of Bostonians toward Italy and Italians; the significant contributions Italians made to the cultural life of Boston prior to 1890; the beginnings of Boston’s first Italian neighborhood in the North End; the mainsprings of the massive turn-of-the-century 20th century Italian immigrant influx into the United States: and, finally, the highly prejudicial climate that prevailed here at the time and how Italians adjusted to it.
