Italy in the White House: Pietro Casini in Florence, Italy

Along with Italian influences in the United States, Italians too have been influenced by American culture and personalities. Pietro Casini was an Italian merchant who lived in Florence. Outside his “Magazzino Roosevelt” storefront, an homage to the former president, Casini was photographed in 1915 dressed as President Theodore Roosevelt along with a United State flag and small picture of Roosevelt.
