Italian Heritage Day: Treasures from Home

Today, the Italian American service group I belong to held it’s annual “Heritage Day.” It was a great event, with over 100 people in attendance. We had traditional Italian foods available for tasting, one of our members gave an Italian language lesson, and a professional opera singer sang some beautiful arias. I helped pull together a display of items and artifacts from Italy, modeled after the “Treasures from Home” display at the Ellis Island museum. Here are some photos of the items we had on display, including an old football (soccer) jersey, dolls, housewares, documents and more.
