A Day to Honor All Italian Immigrants. This day is set aside for the parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, and beyond – every Italian who
journeyed to America from Italy, regardless of the route. It’s to honor those who sought to make a better life for themselves
and their families, to remember them for the sacrifices they endured, and to thank them for the opportunities they provided
us and for their contributions to America.
It’s also a day to think about your ancestors, where they came from, and where their ancestors
came from; and to learn something about Italy and your heritage.
