This is more than a podcast, it is a movement to bring Italian Americans together, united and knowledgeable about our past accomplishments, our traditions and culture, our unique individual stories but also and perhaps the most important issue is to bring awareness to the youth and to educate them for the future of Italian America. This is a future concern that I hold very dear to my heart. We must do the right things and take the right actions to create a future vibrant ethnic group. It is our RESPONSIBILITY as Italian Americans today to ensure there will be Italian Americans tomorrow with a knowledge for why we are proud along with a piece of their hearts for this pride.

Keepin’ It Real with Frankie D. is an Italian American podcast hosted by Frank Di Piero, covering a wide variety of topics regarding Italian American life, history and accomplishments. He is very passionate about his Italian background and he hopes these shows in a small way will help to keep the Italian culture alive in our hearts and in our families.


Thank you to all, it is a great pleasure to do these shows and by the way the photos on this page in the background of the name of the show are photos of my family and like the name of the show says, I am just keepin’ it REAL.
