American Italian Heritage Museum

American Italian Heritage Museum In Honor of the Italian Immigrants Who Came to the United States of America
The American Italian Heritage Museum is operated by the American Italian Heritage Association. Founded in 1979, we have become an international organization with members in 36 states and four nations!: Canada, Italy, China, and the French West Indies. Our goals are to record and preserve our Italian heritage and culture. The AIHA operated the Italian Cultural Center & Museum located at 668 Catherine Street, Utica, New York (Utica's "Little Italy" - east side of the city) 1985. It was closed late in 1998 so that plans for the new national museum in Albany, NY could begin. www.aiha-albany.org

Mission: We are committed to record and preserve the contributions of our Italian heritage and culture to our society. The association seeks through its newsletter, cultural programs, activities, exhibits, projects, and outreach, programs to enhance, highlight, and extend the Italian heritage, history and culture to the public.

Hardcore Italian Memes

There are some things you can spoil, like pizza. There are also some people who will set a bad example when it comes to our Italian heritage. We try hard to be a model for what our Italian heritage and culture is really about.

Learn to make ancient Roman bread from a master baker

It is amazing what you find out almost daily about Italy. As an educator I often
repeat, you are never too old to lean, and all your life continue to learn. This
helps to explain the role of bread in Italian culture and how old bread making is.

The months of isolation and down-time have many of us searching for crafts to keep our hands (and the kids) busy, and if we can find an activity that teaches something, then that’s even bette…

We The Italians

I don't think technology is the best way to share Italian culture, it is a tool. Sharing church, culture, heritage is best
shared in community. We hope you are looking forward to the day when we come together to enjoy and share our Italian heritage!

Italy looks at new ways of sharing Italian culture with the world. Italy's culture minister Dario Franceschini said his ministry is discussing the creation of an Italian online platform that gives paid access to Italian culture, describing it as "a sort of Netflix of culture", according to news agency ANSA.

Franceschini said the proposed platform could be used to offer cultural content in a different way, adding that: "I am convinced that the online offer will continue even after [the coronavirus emergency]: for example, there will be those who want to attend the premiere of La Scala in the theatre and those who will prefer to do so, paying, staying at home."

Rome, Italy is 2,773 years old, it has seen it all and still stands.

Coronavirus: Italy prepares for Phase Two

Nations are faced with how to save their economies, if we wait to long we may not be able to survive. Pray for those in leadership so know when and how to start so people get back to work and products we need are made again.

Phase 2 could begin on 4 May but Italy's schools may not reopen until autumn. The second phase in Italy's Coronavirus emergency could last between "six and eight months", an Italian health expert warned on 8 April, reports Italian news agency ANSA.

Italian PM Giuseppe Conte: "America And President Trump Once More Have Proven To Be Italy's True And Loyal Friends"

This is interesting. Neither the American or Italian government at this time has an answer of when we get
our economy started. That answer is very important, because we can't go for much longer like this. Millions
of people are out of work, more will be and we are already
in great debt. When will be safe, we don't know!

Prime Minister of Italy Giuseppe Conte joined Chuck Todd on NBC's "Meet the Press," where he spoke about how the coronavirus has impacted his country. Conte said Italy's "response has not been perfect" to the outbreak and now people "are suffering." He also said the pandemic is a "watershed" moment....

Sit back and reflect how blessed we are today that we have modern medicine,

So many things are gone, our museum keeps the treasures of the past for

What a story, we have seen so much bad news coming out of Italy. Today the number of deaths have dropped in Italy.
Please note you still are able to reach us at 518 435-1979 by voice mail and we will return your call.

Italy, a country in the grip of the world’s worst novel coronavirus epidemic, celebrated the remarkable recovery of a 101-years-old man from the Covid-19. The man, identified only as Mr. P, was hospitalized about a week ago and discharged on Thursday after fighting off the virus, his town of Rimini said in a statement.

According to Rimini’s Deputy Mayor, Gloria Lisi, it is in the darkest of times that certain stories take on a broader meaning. Recalling that Mr. P was born in the midst of the Spanish flu outbreak which killed at least 50 million people from 1918-20.
