The American-Italian Federation of the Southeast was founded in 1973

to represent and support Italian-American Organizations of the Southeast at the Local, National, and International Levels.

Honoring Ancestors,

Celebrating Culture, &

Inspiring the Next Generation

Our current projects include erecting a 16′ high Monument to the Sicilian Sugarcane Harvesters of 1870-1924.

Italians and Sicilians have made

significant contributions to America

that can be traced back to the 1600s.
Italian-Americans are still making

significant contributions with many

involved in our member organizations.
