1.) An American citizen of both Italian and American descent
2.) An American citizen that can trace his/her heritage back to both Italy and to the colonies of the United States
An Italian-American has both Italian and American blood. The term Italian-American, as well as other hyphenations in America, is commonly used to signify an American citizen of Italian descent. However, according to international standards, this is incorrect. A true Italian-American is of both Italian and colonial American descent.

This is a challenge for all the Italians or Italian-looking people out there. Basically you have to score a threesome with an Italian girl (from Italy) and an American girl. The kicker is that you have to convince the American girl that you're Italian while convincing the Italian girl that you're American. Extra points if you get 'em both indabutt. The best strategy is to speak bad Italian and broken English and make sure the American girl doesn't know Italian and the Italian girl doesn't know much English. This is a tough one...any guy who pulls it off is generally awarded pimp of the year automatically.

(Not all IAM are like this)

Annoying ass 5th gen men who make being Italian their only personality trait. They speak over immigrants and act like they are immigrants when they aren’t. They are loud, rude, and most of the time can’t even pronounce their own last name correctly.

These people can mainly be found in Boston.
