Thirty-One Days of Italians has released its 2023 List, honoring extraordinary people of Italian heritage who significantly influenced the history and development of America. The project was launched in 2006, with a list being provided annually for the month of October.

The first day in October honors the Italian immigrant and the last day is set aside to honor someone not on the list.

Honorary members are on the List every year and include Fr. 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.

Other names are rotated, giving everyone on Thirty-One Days of Italians a chance to have their day. The 2023 List includes Helen Barolini, Yogi Berra, Giovanni Caboto, Joe DiMaggio, Anthony Fauci, Geraldine Ferraro, Lee Iacocca, Ernest and Julio Gallo, Dominick Ghirardelli, Fiorello La Guardia, Vince Lombardi, Henry Mancini, Anthony Rossi, and Frank Sinatra.
