Well, the Swiss are all something else anyway, right? I mean, there's French Swiss, German Swiss and Italian Swiss.
At least they speak the language and are familiar with the culture, which is more than many people who call themselves "Italians" (i.e. Americans with maybe an Italian great-grandfather) do.
To be fair, there is a pretty distinct Italian-American culture on some parts of the states, but I get what you're saying.
While true, Italian-American culture isn't the same thing as Italian culture. And I say this as an Italian-American (ish) who does speak Italian (that I had to learn in school, but at least my Grandfather spoke Italian). Although my family is from Northern Italy and far removed from the Italian-American culture, which is pretty firmly meridionale.
