Exploring Arkansas: Little Italy


Ciao, amici! Chuck heads out to the foothills of the Ouachita mountains — a place that reminded the founders of their homeland so much that they eventually called it Little Italy, Arkansas. We find out how the descendants of Joseph and Maria Belotti are working to keep the community’s vineyards alive and productive and check out the Little Italy Heritage Museum to get a better understanding of how these immigrants made their way in Arkansas, Land of Opportunity.
