Our Story

Growing up in Upstate New York as the great-grandchild of Italian immigrants, italyMONDO! founder Peter Farina was always interested (perhaps “obsessed” is the better word) in his Italian roots. That passion became a way of life in 2006 when he founded italyMONDO! after attending college in Syracuse, NY.

He created a company that he wished existed when he was applied for Italian citizenship, researched his family tree, visited his ancestral hometowns, and found (and met) his long-lost cousins that were still living in Italy – a company that not only offered the services that he wished a company offered almost two decades ago, but also how they were offered.

Hence not only the comprehensive services that italyMONDO! pioneered and still offers today, but the extreme dedication to quality and sense of customer service that Peter instills in the almost two dozen team members that now make up “The italyMONDO! Service.”

In the end, italyMONDO! was founded to help people just like you – as we’re just like you. Our only mission is to change your life (like the pursuit of our own Italian roots changed ours).

So, what are you waiting for? Contact italyMONDO! today and discover your Italian roots!
