Un Tricolore A Stelle E Strisce
(An Italian Flag with Stars and Stripes)
Book Presentation by Giovanni Pellerito and Peter Zullo
You are cordially invited to attend a special double feature at the Museum featuring a presentation by Giovanni Pellerito and Peter Zullo on their latest book titled, “Italians: Un Tricolore A Stelle E Strisce (An Italian Flag with Stars and Stripes) and a musical performance by Italian singer Michéal Castaldo who will be presenting his latest cd titled, “Bergamot: Like a Breath of Fresh Air”.
Italians: An Italian Flag with Stars and Stripes seeks to tell the story of Little Italy through the eyes, the looks, the stories and the colors of Italians living in Little Italy today. The book features an introduction by the Museum's Founder and President, Dr. Joseph V. Scelsa, who summed up the work of the two authors with these words:
“It has been said that Italians found America, named it and built it, but more than that, they believed in it, not only as a land with great opportunity but as a place where they could be free to be the creative, talented, dedicated people they are. After all, it is in their DNA.” “Giovanni Pellerito and Peter Zullo have captured their spirit of devotion to quality of life through words and pictures which make the Italian story come alive.”
Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing.
