Why did the Italians come to America?
Italians came to America for the same reasons that every other ethnic group came: a better life. Rumors were rampant that the streets of America were paved with gold, everyone was rich, and life was at the highest standard. They hoped to leave behind sad memories, gain religious freedom, and have rich farmland and share in the wealth of Americans. It took awhile and they had to work hard, but they eventually achieved what they all hoped for.
