The Italian Americans: PBS peels away stereotypes, reveals how Italians assimilated into and influenced American culture
PBS, 9:00 PM ET
This two-night (concluding Feb. 24), four-part series traces the evolution of Italian-Americans from the late 19th century to today.
Tony Bennett, David Chase, John Turturro, Nancy Pelosi, Gay Talese and more offer insights. Once “outsiders” viewed with suspicion and mistrust, Italian-Americans are today some of the most prominent leaders in U.S. business, politics and the arts. The series peels away myths and stereotypes to reveal a world uniquely Italian and uniquely American. Stanley Tucci narrates.
The episodes airing tonight are “La Famiglia (1890-1910)” and “Becoming Americans (1910-1930).”
