Are you an Italian American looking to connect with people who share your heritage? Fughedaboutit! There is no need to look any further. ItalianAmericanTalk.com is a brand new website just recently introduced to allow people with this common background to laugh together, swap recipes, share stories, and ultimately get to know one another.
Creator of the site, Dominick Miserandino understands firsthand this strong sense of tradition. He explains, “As an Italian American myself, I speak from experience when I say that it is a deeply rooted culture. There is a definite feeling of pride associated with Italian ancestry. Our forum fosters this special bond by allowing people with this shared heritage to connect with each other. I frequent the site and often find myself smiling or laughing because I can relate so well. Anyone of Italian descent, or for that matter, anyone who has a true appreciation for the culture, will definitely enjoy the personal contributions of our guests.”
The site obviously doesn’t take itself too seriously. One discussion is a showcase for Italian jokes and another offers advice to the lovelorn from “Sicilian Mama”, the forum leader. Still, more serious topics are covered including raising Italian American children and a dissection of contemporary and historical media portrayals. The site also leaves room for such personal touches as a wistful narration of the typical Italian Sunday dinner or reflective accounts of journeys back to the “Motherland”.
Threads are categorized under General, Paisanos, Food, La Lingua, Television/Movies, Gardening, Wine, Italy, and Little Italys.
ItalianAmericanTalk.com is owned and operated from the same founding team as TheCelebrityCafe.com. The site was developed in 2005 to provide Italian Americans, or anyone else who may be interested, an online community to discuss related issues. The site is formatted as a forum and offers a range of discussion threads including media representation, family behavior, Italian gardening, deciphering the language, and more.
