Summary
  • "Experience history through removable documents. Italian influence can be seen everywhere in America--in its buildings and its books, in its culture and its cuisine. Passage to Liberty tells the story of how Italians became Americans and fulfilled their dreams of rebuilding the image of Rome in their new country. Woven into the history of Italian immigration to the New World is the true story of Antonio, grandfather of one of the authors, and of his family's assimilation and acceptance in America. Both a work of history and a moving narrative, Passage to Liberty brings to life the experiences of a people whose talents, contributions, and self-sacrifice helped them to make this country their own." --Back cover
  • "Passage to Liberty beautifully illustrates a subject that has largely been overlooked: the Italian experience in America." --Gay Talese, author of Unto the Sons; back cover
