From...to construction in grammar
How do you use the range construction "from...to" if you want a list of ranges? such as: Everyone worked together, from Asians to Latinos, from Christians to Muslims, and from Kenyans to Italians.
You have properly used the construction. However, you might consider using what is known as an elliptical construction that would make your sentence follow better. An elliptical construction omits a word or phrase that is clearly understood and implied by the context:
Everyone worked together, from Asians to Latinos, Christians to Muslims, and Kenyans to Italians.
