Project Description

This bimonthly newspaper, first published in Los Angeles in 1908, is the oldest Italian-American newspaper in the U.S.  As Seattle correspondent, my stories cover Italians and Italian Americans who have had an influence on the Pacific Northwest, whether in arts and culture, history or business. My stories in L’Italo-Americano appear in both Italian and English, online and in the print edition.

I also report on arts and travel when I’m on the road in Italy, helping uncover some of that country’s hidden gems. Check out these articles, below:
