Planting Our roots

A Journey From Italy to America. ​

In this short booklet, I captured the story of my family's experience coming to America in the 60's. The stories and pictures are first hand documentation of what it was like for my dad, uncle, and grandparents to completely uproot their lives and plant themselves in Chicago. The goal was to design with a scrapbook style while still keeping the information relevant for future generations of my family to read and understand their history. Then, of course, include the Italian flag color scheme!​
