The Italian-American Memories: Documentary Archive is a project conceived and developed by Viviana Pezzullo, Domenica Diraviam, Vincenza Iadevaia, and Federico Tiberini, in collaboration with Dr. Ilaria Serra and the Italian Program of the Department of Languages, Linguistics and Comparative Literature at Florida Atlantic University. The online catalog collects miscellaneous material on Italian-American history and culture ranging from Oral History interviews to the original correspondence of an Italian-American family during the 1940s. 
The letters belonging to the Badia Family Collection have been donated to the Italian Program by Patricia Badia-Johnsonn in 2017.
