Between 2002 and 2007 History Colorado (HC) staff collaborated with Colorado’s Italian American community to document that community’s story in the state—a story previously underrepresented in the HC collection. A key to this successful collaboration was the development of the HC Colorado Italian American Preservation Association (CIAPA). The mission of this volunteer organization founded in 2002 includes developing, supporting, and coordinating projects that preserve, promote, and celebrate Italian American culture and heritage. The organization has carried out its mission by meeting with people from Colorado’s Italian American community, recording their stories and creating an archive of research materials (the CIAPA archive) that include oral histories, documents, photographs, moving images, sound recordings, and artifacts. These materials served as the foundation for the development of the 2007 exhibit The Italians of Denver and the 2008 publication of the book Italy in Colorado: Family Histories from Denver and Beyond. History Colorado’s partnership with the Italian American community continues today; CIAPA members are helping to process the CIAPA archive for public access. A select number of items from the CIAPA research archive are presented here.
