Historical Note

 

 

            L'Italo-Americano, one of the first Italian language newspapers in the South, began publication about 1885 in New Orleans, La.  In later years advertisements and articles in English were included. It provided the Italian population of Louisiana, not only with local, national, and foreign news, but also reported social events in the area which would be of interest to the Italian community. 

 

La Voce Coloniale, began publication in New Orleans, La., about 1915, and was intended for Italian-Americans living in the New Orleans area.  Beginning in 1962 the newspaper included articles of interest to the area's Latin-American community, and was tri-lingual with material in Italian, English and Spanish.  The title of the newspaper was changed several times with the following variations: Italo-American News (January 1, 1955 - May-June 1962), Italian-American International Review (July, 1962 - February, 1963), and The International Review (March, 1963 - July, 1964).
