Description: The project documents the history of Italian-Americans in Albuquerque. Issues of adaptation, assimilation, cultural change, and cultural maintenance are also examined. Since the late 19th century, Italian Americans have been involved in various community enterprises including politics, education, religion, and business. Despite the importance of Italian-Americans to the ethnic, economic, and political development of Albuquerque, the history of the community has been largely undocumented, and therefore understudied. This project attempts to fill that void.
