How the Italian Immigrants Came to New England

New England Historical Society, “How the Italian Immigrants Came to New England,” 2019. This overview essay, complete with numerous images, discusses how Italian immigrants put their stamp on New England as indelibly as any Puritan. New England, in fact, is the most Italian region in the United States. Today, the descendants of Italian immigrants make up more than 10 percent of the population of every New England state except Vermont and Maine.
