Italian Immigration to Madison County

Madison County Historical Society

Italians brought their language, food and music with them from the old country and these are reflected in our culture today. Joann Condellone, the great-granddaughter of Italian immigrants to Madison County, will look at the lives and contributions of numerous Italian individuals and families who made an impact in Madison County, including the Lumaghi family who owned coal mines, miners Giovanni and Peter Berutti, labor organizer Peter Condellone, social activist Katie DeRorre and several contemporary immigrants.
