Tampa in Hillsborough County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
The Coming of the Italians
The Italians settled in the eastern area of Ybor City, then called "La Pachata" in honor of a Cuban rent collector and the first settler in the area.
Their descendants have achieved high political positions and notable success in the fields of finance, commerce, and various professions. Their contributions to the growth and cultural life of the Tampa Community have been substantial.
