Founding Families

Little Italy San Jose was able to acquire the property and historic home that will soon become the Little Italy San Jose cultural center & museum in 2013.  This would not have been possible without the generosity and support of these "Founding families" of Little Italy San Jose. We honor and are grateful for their commitment for this tremendous effort to create a permanent Italian Museum in San Jose and a cultural gathering place and event center in Little Italy San Jose.

Grazie Mille from all of us!
