happy Columbus Day! Today we commend everything Italian including the "pioneer" of America, Christopher Columbus. See the most interesting images here.

In late decades, the occasion has turned out to be progressively questionable with the ascent of the option Indigenous People's Day. Not to be beaten, the date is added that of Leif Erikson Day, which commands the Viking Erikson's landing in the Americas 500 years previously Columbus.
Italian-Americans see Columbus Day as a festival of Italian-American legacy.
Until the late twentieth century, Italian-Americans confronted prejudice in the United States and Columbus day memes origin in Denver in 1905 was wanted to be an acknowledgment of Italian culture in the New World. Be that as it may, in the 1911 Dillingham report, made by the United States Immigration Commission, Italians were portrayed as "inalienably criminal" by the legislature.

In spite of this, quite a bit of Italian culture is praised today as American.
