Edges, both jagged and sharp, spring from the 

tension of living and maturing between two conflicting factors:  

cultural assimilation – on the one hand suppressing ethnic identity 

in the public square – and on the other, developing a personal 

identity which internalized that heritage. Edge upon edge, these 

elements represent the conflicts for Italian immigrants within the 

melting pot of L’america. This collection of memoirs and reflections, poetry and prose, takes the reader through one man’s experiences 

as a first born Italian in America and an American in Italy. 

Italian-Americans will recognize the challenges of assimilation 

in “Edge City”. Readers of all ethnicities 

will gain a new understanding of 

the Italian culture in America.
