We strive to preserve the rich heritage of Italian ancestry.




Italian American Historical Society of Rhode Island


The society supports and presents programs of a social, cultural, and historical nature for the membership and for the community.

Most organizations are as strong as its membership. As it was said years ago, ‘United we stand, divided we fall.’ We are real proud to be Americans, but behind this honor, there still exists the ancestry and ethnicity that we pass on to our children.
— Raymond Gallo, President, 1979
