Cordasco, Francesco – Theory into Practice, 1981
The American school system precariously bridged the two separate worlds in which the Italian immigrant child existed, that of his ethnic community and of the dominant society.

La Sorte, Michael A. – 1985

Aversa, Alfred, Jr. – Journal of Ethnic Studies, 1978
After a review of how Blacks went about constructing a new self-identity, an analysis of the Italian-American case reveals three motifs to be introduced as a potential frame of reference for identity building: the grandeur of Renaissance Italy; pastoralism; and the immigrant experience (family and work).
