Welcome to Italy Gen!

The best port of departure to your Italian ancestor's adventure


Between 1876 and 1976 approximately 30 millions of Italians left their native soil immigrating to several countries in the world. More than 4 millions emigrated to the United States of America. Perhaps because they tried to forget a painful past, most of their descendants know very little about their names and their history.
