Italians in the Lowcountry is the first book to explore the contributions and legacies of the Italian and Italian American community in Charleston, South Carolina. The book was graciously supported by the Dante Alighieri Society of Charleston.


Italians in the Lowcountry utilizes historic documentation, images, and interviews to add the important and diverse stories and experiences of Charleston's Italians and Italian Americans to the city's historical narrative. It chronicles the Italian experience in from the colonial era to the present, with biographical sketches of noteworthy Italians, discussion of ethnic communities and businesses throughout the city's history, and the contributions and the current Italian community in the greater Charleston area in the present. A preface from Cristiano Musillo, Consul General of Italy in Miami, and a section on the Spoleto Festival featuring interviews from former Mayor Joseph P. Riley and General Director Nigel Redden, highlight the important cultural contributions that continue today.
