Joe DiMaggio was the greatest, but he was not the first, and he was not the last. Throughout the hundred years history of USA sports, thousands of Italian Americans went like him after the dream of a better life. Hundreds of them eventually made it, and in dozens even reached the highest points of their sports. Some of them were never to be forgotten. Other fell into oblivion by few years. But if the symbol Joe DiMaggio is enough to represent them all, their stories, often heartbreaking, always compelling, would need an entire book to be told. An ebook like this one.
