Soccer, Italy, Pinter’s Birthday Party and me.

Sharing the highs and lows of my B-day today.
I made it to almost 70 today year.  After a mini-breakfast, I decided to take a foray out of my humidified studio and go out for lunch at Luigi’s.
But first I would make a trip downtown for a few fresh items at Whole Foods.  These days if it’s TOO hot I tend to stay in my building for those days.  Today i was just humid so I got the second bus back from downtown to Luigi’s. The food there is always excellent but today there were unexpected bus detours.  I saw a huge crowd on Bloomfield Av., and thought something disastrous had happened again in Newark.
Upon departing that bus my fresh products from Whole Foods crashed out of the bad because of the humidity onto the street. Miraculously, the glass bootle of cream did not shatter as all items do on my tiled kitchen floor.

Started walking the 1/4 mile to Luigi’s and realized after getting halfway there they were broadcasting the Italy-UK soccer match there outdoors on Bloomfield Av. 
It was exciting to see such a huge crowd locally watching soccer but there they were.

Realizing, this might be a futile venture I started walking back to the nearest working bus stop and arrived back here.  No dinner, But I had a fresh banana and chocolate milk from whole foods. 

Broadway, LaScala, and Newark, Italy + Me for 21/22.

“Daniel P. Quinn takes readers on a guided tour of his prolific career as an actor, director and producer through “a series of journalistic snapshots in a scrapbook of theatrical adventures.”

The Montclair Times.

Quinn’s career has spanned the productions of such notable shows as the U.S. premieres of Stone, Derek and other works by British playwright Edward Bond, the world premieres of Sacco & Vanzetti by Daniel Gabriel, Away Alone by Janet Noble, and Two and Twenty by Paul Parente, and revivals of The Women of Trachis by Sophocles, and works by Seneca, John Maguire (1877), the controversial Black Jesus Passion Play, and composers such as Stephen Foster, Hanns Eisler, Louis Morreau Gottschalk, Kurt Weill and Hector Berlioz. Quinn received The Short Play Festival Award for his work as producer on Two and Twenty, The Irish Institute Award for Honesty Is the Best Policy and Diary of a Madman received a Best Actor OBIE as well.
Quinn is the author of organized labor: (Barnes&Noble.com), which achieved notable coverage on National Public Radio, The Village Voice, The Coast Star, The Bergen Record, and The Italian Voice. The poems in organized labor have been called “poignant and alive,” “wonderful,” and “refreshing.” Sensations magazine.


“organized labor” (Amazon.com) is an ambitious first collection by Daniel P. Quinn, which covers four generations of American and family history, from the birth of his grandmother in NYC in 1887 to the fall of the Twin Towers in 2001. Like much of the poetry in this 46-page volume, the book’s title has multiple allusions: from poems that deal with the organized labor movement in America (most notably, the 1913 strike of 20,000 Paterson silk workers at Botto House in Haledon, NJ), to the labor of organizing — and reconciling — past and present (captured eloquently in the title poem, ‘Organized Labor’), to even the labor of preparing one’s poetry for publication.

We offer workshops or guest lectures on Broadway, opera, or world theatre on demand. He can offer private or group tours of Newark.

Dear Friends,

We offer walking tours about the history of Paterson and Lyon for 2021–23. Since 1883 they have been Sister Silk Cities including the remarkable heritage of the City Hall in Paterson, which remains a homage to Lyon from the support of French industrialists, as well as St. John’s Cathedral, as in Paterson and Lyon.

Most recently we secured a Congressional Proclamation for the Orchestre de Lyon when they appeared at NJPAC in 2017 from Bill Pascrell. Earlier I was a guest of French Cultural Services in Lyon for cultural exchange.

A few years ago, and now with recent correspondence, I notified the Zimmerli Museum about the importance of their Grand Guignol puppets in their collection. They are now aware of this Lyon Paterson connection for Century 21. This would be a fabulous program and cultural exchange.

My work has also included an op-ed in The Herald-News, and an editorial in The Bergen Record and our Arts Festivals in Paterson. In 2018 and 2019, my events included The French Connection for Fair Lawn Library, and PATERSON at Oradell Library. In addition, to other programs on Lyon and Paterson at Paterson Museum; Morris Museum; and Lambert Castle and elsewhere.

KInd regards,

Daniel P Quinn,

My salute to Atlantic Crossing on PBS.

Just by happenstance I started watching Atlantic Crossing. It was a moving, dramatic series about Norway before and during WW II. An important insight into little known Nordic history with a stirring score and multi-lingual cast.

We were invited to take part in this Zoom meeting with The Conference of Presidents of Major Italian American Organizations. They impressed me with their seriousness of purpose and my work in part as a homage to my Grandfather who left Italy for America over 100 years ago. We are thrilled to share their release on Italy and America for Century 21.

“In Seismic Political Shift the Italian Parliament Has Voted to Defend
Columbus Day, Statues in the U.S.

ROME, Italy—History was made today when Parliamentarians overwhelmingly approved a motion in defense of Christopher Columbus. The motion was presented by Hon. Fucsia Fitzgerald Nissoli and Hon. Federico Mollicone, who are distinguished members of the Italian Parliament’s Chamber of Deputies.

Discussions on the motion began in October 2020, and its’ passage represents a landmark victory for Italians and Italian Americans alike.

“The Italian Chamber of Deputies commits the Government

1) to take action, on the political and diplomatic level, so that the Italian cultural heritage in the USA and the symbolic figure of that heritage embodied by Christopher Columbus may be safeguarded;

2) to use all the communication tools available to the Government, to grant the enhancement, both at the level of bilateral Italy-U.S. relations and at the multilateral level, of the real historical role of Christopher Columbus, an explorer moved by the noble sentiments of discovery, at the basis of the evolution of society and of the whole of humanity.”

Read the full motion, here.

The Conference of Presidents of Major Italian American Organizations (COPOMIAO), led by Basil M. Russo, fully endorses this first-ever motion by the Italian Parliament, which, up until now, was unengaged on the fight for Columbus in the U.S.

COPOMIAO, the national voice on Italian American issues, would like to extend its unwavering gratitude to Hon. Nissoli and Hon. Mollicone, and to Umberto Mucci — the Founder and CEO of We the Italians.

With virtually no support from their peers to begin with, these Italian leaders spent years defending Columbus as a symbol of Italian American history and pride, and without them this near-unanimous vote would not have come to fruition.

In July, Mucci will organize a press conference live from the press room of the Italian Parliament in Rome, where Hon. Nissoli and Hon. Mollicone, as well as Basil M. Russo, will comment on the outcome of the vote.

Meanwhile in America, The Conference of Presidents of Major Italian American Organizations is working every day alongside the Columbus Heritage Foundation, the Columbus Citizens Foundation, the Commission for Social Justice, UNICO, Order Sons and Daughters of Italy in America, the Italian Sons and Daughters of America, the Italian American One Voice Coalition, the National Columbus Education Foundation and many more to protect and preserve Columbus holidays, parades and statues — all of which are directly tied to Italian American heritage, traditions and values.

“Italian Americans are proud that our brothers and sisters in Italy appreciate the significance that Christopher Columbus represents in the history and assimilation of Italian immigrants and their descendants into American society. We are very grateful for their support,” said Basil M. Russo, in response to the newly passed motion.

Our History

The time-honored Columbus Day celebrations were launched in the late 1800s as Italian immigrants attempted to create a sense of self-esteem and dignity during a period where they were subjected to lynchings, bigotry and prejudice throughout the U.S.

Columbus’s journey sparked 500 years of immigration to America, attracting peoples from throughout the world seeking a better life for their families — this is the spirit we champion and are fighting to preserve, and this is what the Columbus statues stand for.

Our Stance

The Italian American community has always supported the designation of an Indigenous Peoples Day as it is most rightly and most justly deserved.
However, it’s patently unjust that our heritage be erased to appease another group.

With today’s motion, the governmental and business leaders in Italy have sent a clear message that the unfair and lawless treatment of Italian American history will not be tolerated. About the Conference of Presidents of Major Italian American Organizations (COPOMIAO.org):

COPOMIAO, based in New York City, is a coalition of leaders from the 48 largest and most influential IA groups, and we’re here to preserve and promote our impactful culture for today’s generations, and tomorrow’s”.

Viet Nam was driven into me as a child watching the newscasts, the searing chaotic Democratic Convention, and the fake Viet Cong death tally. Later, we had a student strike at Ramapo College and Jane Fonda dropping in by helicopter.

We also had Ralph Nader at our Commencement address.

Forgotten ???

Ramapo was full of veterans in traumatic shock, and one gruesomely disfigured student who had to wear a medical mask.

NJ showed a triumph when we gave the Presidential primary to Jerry Brown.

Submerged yes, Forgotten, NO!!!
