Creating a network to link together all the Italian American communities of the West Coast is not an easy target but it is our ambition, and we believe it is possible with the contribution of our readers.
By writing to [email protected] you can become our correspondent for the Italian American community of your area, and be part of our cultural and editorial project.
In fact, L’Italo-Americano is building upon the big development plan carried out over the last few years to expand its territorial outreach and become the reference point for all the Italians in the west regions of the U.S.
Last week, new columns and pages were added to the Italian section – written by our contributors in Italy in order to ensure up-to-date and authentic information -, and now we are working to increase our presence in the West Central U.S.
Thanks to our web site, to the digital edition recently made available also for tablets and smartphones, and our Facebook and Twitter pages we are able to promote the “Italian life” among the Italians and Italian Americans who live in the United States either temporarily or permanently.
The new sections dedicated to the communities of San Diego, Orange County, San José and Portland have been positively welcomed by our readers, and in the upcoming editions we will also introduce, Salt Lake City, and Seattle. This means covering eight communities in four different States, plus occasionally the large community of Italian immigrants in Vancouver, Canada.
Working with contributors in Oregon, Utah, and Washington means not only that the newspaper is expanding its outreach, but also that it will help distant communities to strengthen their relationship, to know each other better, and to preserve their common cultural heritage.
Our ambitious project testifies that 106 years don’t make the newspaper old but, on the contrary, experienced and ready for new challenges.
Step by step, we aim at giving voice to all the Italian American communities of the West Coast, to their leading figures, their businesses, their cultural and social activities. This may also be a unique occasion to reaffirm our shared choice of being Italians in the United States.
