ITALIAN INFLUENCE
Among European Peruvians, Italians were one of the largest groups of immigrants to settle in the country. The regions where most of the Italian immigrants originated from were Piedmont and Lombardy, as well as Liguria. They worked at small family-run business (such as grocery stores) or in larger enterprises along with their fellow Italians, as they were relatively skilled. Most of the Italo Peruvians came during or immediately after War World II. Most were not mainstream Italians, but they came from the small fascist elite that had been displaced. Many Italian Peruvians intermarried and many Italian Peruvian families are related. Most Italian Peruvians live in Lima. As time passes on, the number of Italian Peruvians is decreasing and the culture diminishes.
