You have the same dream that millions of Italians have had for over
a hundred years. I am not sure of how difficult it will be to enter the
USA at this time, but will try and help.
Your age is considered young here in the U. S. and is no problem.
The first thing you must do is organize your plans in a list of objectives
and questions. These websites should be some help and I suggest
you also find some Italian-American Organizations to contact by letter mail
with your questions.
I must admit that New York is probably the most exciting place to visit
but remember the U.S. is a very large country with many other places with
opportunity. The most important thing in the American culture for you
to remember is PERSISTENCE ( means, never give up).
If you find it to difficult to enter the U.S. I would suggest trying our wonderful
neighbor Canada (very beautiful country with many Italians) .
Quando hai intenzione di andare a NYC?
Anch'io andrò a NY verso Giugno anche se a Settembre mi trafserirò a Boston per studiare in unCollege di musica, sono una cantante/musicista anch'io ed ho 22 anni.SE ti va, fammi sapere più di te
Sofia (ora vivo in Italia!!)
Ciao Sofia! Non so ancora bene "come" e quando andrò a NYC....devo pianificare! Intanto ho iniziato un corso si inglese-americano per praticare un po' !...poi, c'è il problema che io lì non conosco nessuno!!!! Devo prendere dei contatti giusti prima di partire. Sono sassofonista. Comunque, questo è il mio indirizzo e-mail
a presto, Rossana
If you are college educated, you shouldnt have much difficulty securing a position. I am sure the NYC school system would have a need for a musical instructor who speaks fluent Italian.
If you are a performer, there are many clubs in NYC that I am sure would welcome you. You will need to get a union card first and then I would suggest you pick up some of the trade papers and look for jobs.

NYC is a terrific place, I miss it, I use to live here, chose a different path, made a life for me and my husband and our children in a different state, and live there,its nothing like the city... where it never sleeps...

Dear Rosanna You do not mention relatives in NYC so I have to assume your "on your own" so the best thing to do is contact the organziations that people have furnished you. NYC can best be described as being "A STATE IOF MIND". What I mean is that a native New Yorker is immediately known for being different, pushy but are also able to empower themselves to do what they wish in many social and job situations. Do not be ashamed to ask for what you want. "NO" is just an answer not a disaster. San francisco is a very pleasant city with hills with many pastel colors reminding one of a Pasticceria. For Italians it is an island for italian culture and excellent food on the west coast of America.

Rossana, Sofia, Nuna, mi chiamo Silvia, ladyfreak, ho 28 anni e sto per trasferirmi a nyc portandomi dietro il mio ultimo cd di FUNK. Cerco musicisti per cercare nella grande mela le opportunità che l'italia mi ha negato,
Sarebbe bello..! (scrivetemi [email protected]www.urbansoul.it)
Cmq da novembre sarò americana, cerco casa, lavoro, qualsiasi cosa, ma sono piena di entusiasmo e ottimista.
P.s. Ho degli zii a washington se dovesse servire qualche dritta posso chiedere. Stay tuned
ciao Rossana,sono Marcello e ho 16 anni,anche io vorrei trasferirmi a NY in seguito quindi ti ammiro per il coraggio che ci vuole e ti auguro buona fortuna,hai ragione anche mia madre sarebbe arrabbiata ma come dici tu la vita è una e dobbiamo gestircela noi!
Ciao e divertiti!!
