Northeastern Pennsylvania is statistically one of the most heavily-concentrated Italian-American regions in the United States. While there are many valid Italian-American organizations throughout the region, there is not one that is dedicated exclusively to heritage.
SIAMO's goal is to preserve the Italian-American heritage through publicly-accessible activities, such as art and photography exhibits, reading clubs and Italian language meetups. there is no fee to join, you just have to have a love and passion for all things Italian-American and a desire to see that heritage passed down to future generations.
"SIAMO" means "we are" in Italian. We feel that our name unites all Italian-Americans in a common identity, no matter what town, province or region their ancestors might have come from!
