The website features 74 names in total, with some appearing on the annual list each year and others rotating in and out.

The first day in October honors the Italian immigrant and the last day is set aside to honor someone not on the list. On the list every year are Father Pietro Bandini, Constantino Brumidi, Mother Francis Cabrini, Enrico Caruso, Christopher Columbus, Enrico Fermi, Amadeo Pietro Giannini, Guglielmo Marconi, Filippo Mazzei, Antonio Meucci, Maria Montessori, Andrea Palladio, Antonio Pasin, Arturo Toscanini and Amerigo Vespucci.
