From 1870-1900, more than 4 million southern Italians left their home country, fleeing violence, social chaos, and widespread poverty. Boston’s North End tells the story of the individuals and families who found their way their way to Boston and settled in what became one of America’s oldest “Little Italy” communities.

This series is co-curated by the Northeastern Center for the Arts and the Archives and Special Collections at the Northeastern University Library.
