More links on Columbus Day

The Columbus Day and the Italian Police

This initiative aims at renewing friendship
between the Italian National Police and the Italo-American community,
with whom we share the same traditions and roots.
This page contains photo galleries, computer wallpapers,
clips and other contents to give you an insight
into the Police of yesterday and today.

The Columbus Citizens Foundation is a non-profit organization in New York City
committed to fostering an appreciation of Italian-American heritage and achievement.
The Foundation, through a broad range of philanthropic and cultural activities,
provides opportunities for advancement to deserving Italian-American students
through various scholarship and grant programs.
The Foundation organizes New York City's annual Columbus Celebration
and Columbus Day Parade,
which has celebrated Italian-American heritage
on New York's Fifth Avenue since 1929.
