Italian culture area

DSC_0016
Italy and its people have always been inseparably associated with the arts. Painters, sculptors, poets, and musicians of that beautiful land have influenced and shaped the entire course of Western culture. The Italian immigrants to Texas brought this heritage with them. From opera singers to painters, architects to sculptors of heroic monuments, the Italian Texans have helped bring cultural refinement to the Texas frontier. In addition to the artists themselves, many Texans of Italian ancestry have demonstrated their inherited love of the arts through patronage and promotion of the opera, symphonies, art galleries, and public sculptures. It is in the sculpting of state monuments that the Italians have had their greatest visible impact, but the arts in Texas owe much to the nurturing interest of those Italian Texans who considered their lives incomplete without artistic refinement.
