On October 24th, the Nassau County Legislature celebrated Italian Heritage and Culture Month by recognizing the achievements of Italian and Italian American Nobel Prize Laureates. Joseph Sciame, President of the Sons of Italy Foundation, Inc. and Chair of the Board of Directors of the Italian Heritage and Culture Committee of New York, presented the Legislature with a poster recognizing this year’s theme.
Italians and Italian Americans have been awarded Nobel Prizes in all categories, including Chemistry, Economics, Literature, Peace, Physics, Physiology and Medicine. 26 Italian or Italian American Nobel Prize Laureates are recognized on the poster, and a 27th was awarded a prize after the poster was created.
“Nassau County is home to tens of thousands of Italian Americans, and their vibrant culture is present all around us,” Presiding Officer Richard Nicolello said. “I am very proud to celebrate Italian Heritage and Culture Month and recognize these great Italian and Italian American trailblazers.”
2022 is the 46th Anniversary of the Italian Heritage and Culture Committee.
