ITALIAN AMERICAN                   ELDERS: A Film Project







Giovanna is currently working on a full-length documentary film about Italians in America, specifically the existence of the Italian social clubs in northern California, and how they helped incoming Italian immigrants adjust to life in a new land. Her film is entitled Italian Americans in Oakland: Our Community, Our History. This is an exciting new development and direction.

Giovanna was also the recipient of a film grant in the year 2020, sponsored by the Russo Brothers Italian American Film Forum and the National Italian American Foundation. For more information, please check out their program and her film, as well as the other grant recipients, featured here.
