About the lecture and slide presentation:

Former U.S. Congressman Joe DioGuardi, who founded the Albanian American Civic League and Foundation in 1989, and Shirley Cloyes DioGuardi, the Civic League’s Balkan Affairs Adviser, will present the important role that Albanians have played in the history of Southern Italy for more than 500 years. Their slide presentation will focus on Greci, the oldest of the 51Albanian-speaking villages in Italy (first settled in 1461) and the birthplace of Joe DioGuardi’s father. The DioGuardis most recently visited Greci in September 2016, on an extended trip in conjunction with an Albanian American delegation to the Vatican for the canonization of Mother Teresa, who was born in Albania in 1910.
