What city has the most Italian influence (population by ancestry, contribution to building the economy, culture, restaurants.etc) outside Europe (and obviously Italy)? I excepted the rest of Europe because I know there are Italian enclaves in say Switzerland and Croatia.

I know Buenos Aires has a lot of Italians, but my guess is it's either in the Northeastern US or Australia.

I think the New York Italians are more assimilated by now. Many New Yorkers don't know much about Italy except the Jersey Shore, and to say it's cool they're Italian.

Toronto Italians seem more Italian. Many are tied in to where they came from, regionally, and speak the language. An Italian radio program founded by Johnny Lombardi blares all day long. Alitalia goes to Rome and Milan daily from Toronto. There are some 650,000 of them in the metro area, so that's a substantial portion of the 4 million metro population.

That would make Toronto the 6th or 7th largest city in Italy if it's Italian population stood alone.

Outside of Europe I get the impression Buenos Aires is probably the most Italian city outside Italy as the majority of its population have Italian ancestry. Also Argentine Spanish has a very strong Italian sound to it. The Anglo countries don't compare in terms of the scale and longevity of migration from Italy.

I think you'll find a majority of Argentinians are of mixed European descent, though at least 45% of Argentineans have some Italian ancestry. That is unmatched anywhere else in the world besides nearby Uruguay and certain pockets of Brazil.

In Buenos Aires this percentage would be even higher being the first port of call for most migrants. For most of the 19th and 20th centuries Italian migrants outnumbered Spaniards 2 to 1.
