More than 25,000 Italian immigrants came to Chicago after 1945. These new immigrants injected new enthusiasm into dying institutions and new organizations like the Italian Cultural Center. They reinforced the Italian ethnic population in places like Addison, Elmwood Park, Melrose Park, Norridge, Berwyn, and Westchester.
