The Ciao Washington! blog is migrating to the Ciao Italian America! blog to reflect its true vision, namely, to be a sounding board for Italian Americans across the country. This is a perfect time to start the Ciao Italian America! blog – – October is Italian-American Heritage Month and the time to celebrate the arrival of Christopher Columbus to America’s shores. It’s a time when we can all share in the pride of our Italian heritage.
To all Italian Americans, we wish a Happy Italian America month! Let us not forget our Italian traditions and let us share them with our children and grandchildren. We see no conflict of allegiance in being proud of our Italian roots, just as we are proud of being Americans. We have so enriched the American mosaic that we can truly say that the contributions of Italians in America have built America. God Bless America and the Republic of Italy.
