Some relocated from San Francisco after the devastating 1906 earthquake and fire- many more came to Oakland predominantly from Italys northern regions of Piedmont, Liguria, and Lombardy in search of opportunity and prosperity.

These pioneers worked hard, typically at backbreaking labor, to build new lives. They raised a generation of children who succeeded in their own right and contributed in various ways to their community and nation. As they established new roots and adopted new ways, congregating largely in north Oaklands vibrant and bustling Temescal neighborhood, these Italian Americans also nurtured their Old Country customs and traditions--many of which, along with rare glimpses of bygone days, are portrayed in this charming trip through time.
