Summer Camp Comments

The following comment was left on our FaceBook page by a summer camp attendee. The comment has not been edited.

Dear Casa Italia,I was in the summer camp last year and not only has it helped me on italian, but it changed me to becoming a better person, out in the world and towards the environment. Sadly, I am over the age limit to be in the camp again, but i wanted to say thank you for welcoming me to your family. I miss being in Casa Italia everyday. I have made so many wonderful friends in the camp and have gotten close to the teachers too.

I was never scared when i got in the camp. Everyone was welcoming and i felt safe. Everyday at Casa Italia was an adventure for me and it was very hot outside too! I loved learning to play games like Scopa! and Bocce Ball. I enjoyed playing calcio and help make a garden with everyone. I learned how to cook the italian way and I indulged myself into the wonderful food that was provided. Best of all, I learned a lot about the history and language. I was overwhelmed at how amazing this camp truly was. By the time the camp ended, i ended up crying when i got home. Saying goodbye was the hardest part for me. I felt like Casa Italia was my real home.

I am not italian. Although I wish. I remember telling my teachers, “I’ll do anything to have a drop of italian blood in me. Even if it’s one tiny little drop of italian blood.”
I love Italy and the rich culture and history it has to offer. Along with that, you can’t forget the cuisine and the amazing people as well!
I am excited to say that i will be returning soon for festivals, dinners, and hopefully some italian lessons! I keep up to date with Fra Noi all the time! I’ll stop by sometime at the office to say hi too! Grazie Mille Casa Italia…for everything.
Ti amo! Ci vediamo dopo!

Casa Italia Creates Genealogy Department

2 Comments

Chicago, Illinois – January 4, 2013: Jennifer Holik of Generations collaborates with staff at Casa Italia Chicago to create a new genealogy department. The mission of the Genealogy Department is to collect, catalogue and preserve vital records, documents, published materials, artifacts, and stories pertaining to the family history of Italian Americans in Chicago.

This department’s dedicated and energetic team works in conjunction with the Roselli Library goal of building the most comprehensive archive of Chicago Italian Americana in the Midwest. Scholars, students, authors, and family historians can utilize these materials to research a number of fields including sociology, religious studies, demography, and immigration. Currently, our resources include archives, newspaper articles, religious histories, oral history transcripts, ancestral town information, videos of past genealogy programs, Fra Noi articles and newspapers, the Communes of Italy publications, and many other genealogical references.

 The department will present programs throughout the year for adults and children. A monthly genealogy group will form offering research assistance and programs presented by local genealogical speakers.

Casa Italia Chicago is a non-profit organization in Stone Park, Illinois, where people meet to pursue common goals, preserve our past, celebrate our heritage and ensure passage of values to future generations. Casa Italia offers a children’s summer camp, Italian language classes, and cultural programs throughout the year.

 For more information, follow us on FaceBook, Twitter, our blog, or contact Genealogy Department Manager, Jennifer Holik.
