Italians and Italian-Americans make up a substantial part of the Saint Louis metropolitan region. For over a century, immigrants from the Italian peninsula have made their way to Saint Louis making a profound impact on our civic life and cultural identity. They brought with them their unique traditions and values which still continue to exercise a significant influence over their lives. Without full recognition of the role played by Italian immigrants, the history of Saint Louis would undoubtedly be incomplete. Today the Italian community is extremely diverse. Some families have resided here for four or even five generations. Others have just arrived. They have come for employment, to study at one of our many universities, or simply because they married a Saint Louisan.
Viva l’Italia! Viva Saint Louis!
