In this interview, I am interviewing Elena Brollo about her life in the United States to understand better what it is like to live here. A lot of people wonder if it’s difficult to immigrate from a different country and overall it is a big thing to do which takes a lot but it is worth it. As an Italian immigrant coming here Elena made the most of living here in the states as she lived on both coasts of the United States. The Importance of this Interview is to show how the culture of Italy stays within a person which helps the person keep connected with family and traditions which is very important to Italian culture. This helped me get a better understanding of Italian culture because I interviewed someone who is from Italy and has experience in that culture. What I found during this interview was how closely connected family is in Italian culture and how the little things are very important and mean a lot which gives a better understanding of the difference between the culture of the United States is compared to Italy which shows that Italians care more about their wellbeing and their health compare to the work culture here in the United States.
