The Idea Behind This Blog

One of my favorite things about the holidays is spending time with my family and, after dinner, listening to stories and going through old photo albums my grandma has throughout her home. What keeps the Italian culture alive 6223 miles away from the homeland is sharing these memories with each other. I think this is very important to do and something I don’t want to be lost with the new generations.

I wanted to create a place where members of all the clubs in the Italian American Federation of the East Bay can send in photos, stories, and memories of their friends and families in Italy and in the Bay Area to be posted. These memories will be shared with the community and serve as a reminder of our culture and history.

Here are ways you can reach me:
