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,

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.

Understanding Columbus (1920–27), the Red Scare, SACCO and VANZETTI in 2021.

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”.

100th Anniversary programs for the 1920-27 case of Sacco and Vanzetti here and abroad.



We have a gripping program with Anthony Spaldo, Ellen Lanese and Paul Parente who are featured in DVD film. We would show this with our Award winning short film as well as a talk and discussion about emigration in their and our time.
“Burn them” cried the public of Boston” by Daniel Gabriel.
SACCO & VANZETTI in our acclaimed production premiered in 1983. Subsequently, it toured to the Foundation Theatre at Burlington County College; Garibaldi-Meucci Museum on Staten Island; William Carlos Williams Center +Passaic County College with the American Labor Museum Botto House in NJ as well after our NYC debut Off-Broadway.
Daniel P Quinn’s program on his off-Broadway premiere production of Daniel Gabriel’s SACCO & VANZETTI.  Anniversary program on the August 1927 execution of Sacco & Vanzetti. We have a short film featuring the execution scene of my production with the original cast. We will also offer a audience discussion of the period of the roaring 20’s and anti-emigrant hysteria somewhat like today but then against the Italians.
When?

Ramapo College, Viet Nam, Jane Fonda and Ralph Nader

Ramapo College, Viet Nam, Jane Fonda and Ralph Nader on campus.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with The New York Times community.

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!!!

Kyle MacLachlan was FDR, and Sofia Helin as Norwegian Crown Princess Martha; Tobias Santelmann as Prince Olav; Søren Pilmark as Olav’s father, King Haakon VII and Harriet Sansom Harris as Eleanor Roosevelt.The epic, political drama was filmed in Czech Republic and Norway.“It had the highest budget in Scandinavia for any TV series. We put all the resources we had into it,” said producer Silje Hopland in Variety. 
Brilliantly done.

More Norwegian-Danish cultural history. I did not know that Ibsen wrote his plays in Danish which became Norwegian. PEER GYNT is his most performed play in Norway, which we know primarily by Edvard Grieg’s astounding music.
When I worked on my Edward Bond cycle our publishing contact was John van Knorring who was Norwegian as well.

Internment of Italians in the USA during World War II.

Here are some facts in Century 21.

Trudeau has gotten this right in 2021 via The Washington Post.
Let us not forget La Storia Segretto (Secret History) of the Italians interned here in the United States during WWII. The Italians still sit by unknowing of their own history in Century 21. Why ?
Trudeau apologizes for the WWII internment of Italian CanadiansBy Amanda Coletta ●  Read more »
Some background:
“On February 24, 1994, the exhibit Una Storia Segreta: When Italian Americans Were ‘Enemy Aliens’ opened at the Museo Italo Americano in San Francisco. The opening on February 24 memorialized the date in 1942 when enemy aliens of Italian descent living in recently-designated “prohibited zones” on the West Coast had to leave their homes and businesses in those zones and move elsewhere”.
How about reparations for the Italians and an apology here too by President Biden ?
