When Christopher Columbus, a son of Genoa, Italy, sailed across the Atlantic, no one could have imagined the profound and lasting impact he would have on the world. Looking for a western route to Asia, he saw the Bahamas instead. At dawn on October 12, 1492, Columbus' crew set foot on an island in the Caribbean and changed the course of history. For much of Europe, this marked the discovery of the New World and set in motion the more than five centuries that followed. Columbus' historic voyage ushered in a new era, and the world has never been the same since. His voyage opened the door for generations of Italian immigrants crossing the ocean in search of the promise of America. Like Columbus, these immigrants and their descendants shaped the place where they landed. Italian Americans have enriched our culture and strengthened our country. They have served in our armed forces with honor and distinction, and today they embrace their rich heritage as leaders in our communities and pioneers in the industry.
