The Grandsons of Italy in America is an Italian club for Italian men in Los Angeles, California.
The Grandsons of Italy
in America (G.O.I.I.A.), a nonprofit organization, has its infancy in
September 1989, when Tony Vallo founded an Italian-American men group.
Led by Vallo, the group included Mike Policare, Lou DeMarco, Gino Dente
and Jimmy Ceasar, started to meet twice a month to reflect on their Italian
American upbringing and have a good time. By October 1992, after the group
grew to more than 50 members, it was voted to organize into a social club
to prevent the loss of the Italian culture as Italian Americans were being
assimilated into the American culture. An executive board (President,
Vice president, Secretary, Treasurer and Member at large) was elected,
by-laws were adopted and a vote to incorporate approved.
