NY Italian American Museum

As a nation state, Italy has emerged only in 1871. Until then the country was politically divided into a large number of independant cities, provinces and islands. The currently available evidences point out to a dominant Etruscan, Greek and Roman cultural influence on today's Italians.

I have posted a link to the Italian American Museum in lower Manhattan, New York City. The articles are wonderful. Thought this might be of interest to all Italian Americans.

Peter:
What a coincidence! If you are driving, the Garibaldi Museum is Staten Island is a place I've been trying to get to every time I'm in NY. Will be home (in the Bronx) for Easter - picking up younger son who is a soon-to be ensign aboard the NOAA RV Thomas Jefferson. I may hit both places while I'm there. Hope you enjoy the museum!
