Cover Notes

Italiano Americano – Popular Hits Of The 1940s, 50s & 60s

 Italy, as the unified state we know today, has only existed since 1861, and many of the new country's policies were directed towards industrial development in the North of the country, leaving the poorer and overpopulated South largely to fend for itself.

The hardships thus caused drove emigration to the United States on a scale comparable with that from Ireland – four million people between 1880 and 1920 alone. Given the hardship and unfamiliarity of their new home, it is not surprising that Italian immigrants, like other groups, stuck together in “Little Italies” across the USA, and out of this cohesion arose many Italo-American success stories – not least in entertainment, characterised in large part by nostalgia for the country they had left behind. Conversely, after the Second World War, in which American troops invaded Italy, native Italian artists became fascinated by the land of money, cars, cigarettes, and whisky.

Thus American exiles from Italy idolised the place and those actually living there couldn't get enough of America. True, the other man's grass is seldom anything but greener, but here the contrast is particularly stark.
