Embark with Maggie Workman and me on a voyage through time as she traces her Italian lineage from the cobblestone streets of Onano, Viterbo to the bustling avenues of America. Our conversation meanders through generational tales that piece together a mosaic of our Italian-American identities, blending personal experiences with the broader narrative of Italian migration. The echoes of our ancestors’ footsteps resonate in this episode, as Maggie delves into her genealogical discoveries and I share my Neapolitan legacy, which extend beyond the well-trodden paths of New York to the often-forgotten Italian enclaves of Ohio.

Ever wondered what it takes to plan a wedding amidst the rustic charm of Italy, or how to reclaim a piece of your heritage through citizenship? The adventure doesn’t stop at historical recounts; we also navigate the present-day pursuit of roots – from celebrating love in ancestral towns to untangling the bureaucratic labyrinth for official records. The heartwarming assistance from local Italian mayors, the spontaneous kinship with townsfolk, and the pride in preserving our lineage, all culminate in a narrative that speaks to the romantic and the realist alike.

The episode closes on a poignant note, with an account of Maggie’s serendipitous meeting with a woman dedicated to chronicling emigrant family sagas. It’s a testament to the universal longing to understand where we come from and the importance of safeguarding these legacies. As Maggie and I ponder over the value of such stories, we extend an olive branch to anyone keen on exploring their own histories, emphasizing the profound impact these journeys can have on our sense of self and community. Join us for a heartfelt tribute to Italian roots that not only define our past but continue to shape our present.
