Presentation of the
Library of Congress-Anniversary book and lecture:  “Explorers Emigrants Citizens: A Visual
History of the Italian American Experience.” By co-author and guest speaker Dr.
Mario B. Mignone, SUNY, distinguished service professor at Stony Brook
University, and editor of Forum Italicum.

For the first time
Italian-American history is seen through the collections of the Library of
Congress. The book, co-authored by an Italian, Antonio Canovi, and an
Italian-American, Mario B. Mignone, contains over 500 images ranging from the
first map ever using the name “America”, to the portraits of Joe DiMaggio and
Marilyn Monroe from Look magazine. These images show the diversity of
Italian-Americans themselves and of the lives they led in the United States. A
book not only for Italian-Americans who cherish their heritage, but also for
Italian-American history enthusiasts and people interested in Italian culture.

advance and prepay.
