BENVENUTO!  

Thank you for visiting THE LOUISVILLE ITALIANS, the digital home of the Italian-American Association (IAA) of Louisville.  The IAA was established in 1974 for the purpose of promoting the spirit and heritage of those classic and contemporary Italian cultural values recognized all over the world here in Louisville, Kentucky by adding our touch of southern charm and hospitality.

Although Italians and Italian-Americans have never represented a large percentage of the population in the city of Louisville, our contributions are many, our achievements are numerous, and our civic engagement is extensive. THE LOUISVILLE ITALIANS site is designed to help you become familiar with both the IAA’ past and present community involvement and keep you up to date on the many upcoming fun and exciting IAA social events and activities.  Most importantly, being a frequent visitor to THE LOUISVILLE ITALIANS is also the fastest way for you to become a part of our extended family.
