#interview : Welcome to the @italianistl Italian Community of Saint Louis🇮🇹 Oftentimes, Italian or Italian American associations at the center of a community in one of the many American cities are led by exceptional Italian American men or women who have gained over the years the experience necessary to preside over a community that recognizes itself in loving and celebrating Italy. They are sometimes white-haired leaders who, with their charisma, represent Italy in their cities in an exceptional way.
Sometimes, much more rarely, these leaders are younger. They still exceptionally deliver, but they also bring innovation with a younger, dynamic approach. They are two different types of leadership, both winning. Today we meet Michael J. Cross, the young Italian who is revolutionizing the Italian community in Saint Louis, Missouri.
Please enjoy an extract of the interview:
Michael, you are the President of the Comunità degli Italiani – St. Louis. Please tell us something about the history, the activities and the vision of your association, one of the few with an Italian name in the US.
The Comunità degli Italiani – St. Louis, or as we are called in English, the Italian Community of St. Louis, is an official non-profit organization dedicated primarily to Italians living in the St. Louis metropolitan area but also to anyone who would like to learn or practice the Italian language and to those who are simply interested in Italian culture. We represent all Italians who have come to live in this part of the United States and especially the many in our community who have more recently immigrated.
