Living to Eat: Italian Food, Identity, and Representation in Utica

Philip Bean, Ph.D., Author of The Urban Colonists: Italian American Identity and Politics in Utica, New York and Associate Dean at Haverford College, Haverford, Pennsylvania

Free and open to the public

Although a cliché, the expression “you are what you eat” encapsulates this discussion of Italian cuisine and the ways it has defined “Italianness.” It will serve as an entrée into a conversation about Italian life in Utica, as well as a brief overview of artists including Rose Marasco, Bob Cimbalo, and Larry Pacilio, who have produced visual representations of Italian-American life in Utica.
