Italians in Los Angeles

Over 568,000 Italian Americans live in the greater Los Angeles area, 95,000 within the city itself, making the Italian American population in Los Angeles the fourth largest in the United States. Unlike many other American cities, with a nuclear “Little Italy,” the Italian American community of Los Angeles has extended in all directions, gracing the entire region with its rich gifts and talents in art, architecture, banking, engineering, literature, cuisine, wine making, and film. Italian men and women of knowledge, courage, and insight have embraced these industries to make life better for future generations. This book provides a glimpse into the Italian heritage that lies at the heart and soul of Los Angeles. To honor each individual contribution would require many volumes; the people and businesses profiled in this book are representations of the vast Italian community that is woven into the tapestry of Los Angeles.
