Description: How early Italians in Philadelphia formed a community that would provide a home for later immigrants.Philadelphia's first Italian immigrants arrived in the mid-eighteenth century. Artists and scholars, tradesmen and entrepreneurs, they established a new community -- one of the first "Little Italies" in America -- that would provide not just a home but a sense of belonging for later arrivals.Richard Juliani tells the story of early Italians in the City of Brotherly Love: why they chose that city, what their lives were like, where they lived, and how they interacted. Examining Italian settlement from pre-Revolutionary times up to the eve of mass migration in the 1870s, he shows how these early pioneers created the basic structure of the community that would continue into the twentieth century.Juliani has devoted thirty years of research -- combing through newspapers, public archives, religious records, business documents, and files of private organizations -- to recapturing the creation ofa community.

Building Little Italy provides a rare opportun
