Italians In Chicago 1945-2005

More than 25,000 Italian immigrants came to Chicago after 1945. The story of their exodus and reestablishment in Chicago touches on war torn Italy, the renewal of family and paesani connections, the bureaucratic challenges of the restrictive quota system, the energy spirit of the new immigrants, and the opportunities and frustrations in American society. Drawn from scores of family albums, these intimate snapshots tell the story of the unique and universal saga of immigration, a core theme in American and Italian history.
