On this episode of ITALICS, Italytime Theater’s Vittorio Capotorto joins Anthony Tamburri.
ITALICS Women’s History Month Special features two historians: Anna Pizzuti, a teacher who created a historical online database on Jews interned in Italy during Fascism, and Marcella Bencivenni, HOSTOS teacher and current editor of “The Italian American Review.”
Born in Brooklyn to Abbruzzese immigrants and raised in Staten Island, Donato Di Camillo’s works have been printed in over forty publications nationwide, in just the past year. He talks with Lucia Grillo about his journey to discovering his passion for photography and his unique perspective.
Filmmaker Natalie Abruzzo talks with Lucia Grillo about her documentary short, “The Sixty-Six Percent.” Hon. Francesco Genuardi, Consul General of Italy in New York, is among honorees at the Garibaldi-Meucci Museum fundraiser.
This episode of ITALICS features Giovanni Reda, skateboarding’s most celebrated photographer. Mr. Reda is also a director, whose latest documentary - about acclaimed pro skater, Brian Anderson, recently coming out – has earned immense acclaim and support from the community, and due recognition: a feature in the New York Times, airing on Viceland, and new projects in the works. Lucia Grillo meets up with Mr. Reda at Diamond Supply NYC to talk with the artist during a retrospective of his photography.
ITALICS attends an outdoor performance of Harry Warren’s classics at the Garibaldi-Meucci Museum in Staten Island. Oscar-winning composer of such hits as "Lullaby of Broadway," Harry Warren was the first major American songwriter to write primarily for film, including the first blockbuster on-screen musical “42nd Street.” Born Salvatore Antonio Guaragna, Warren wrote over 800 songs, among them "At Last," rendered beloved to the modern listener by Etta James’s powerful voice. Alex Leonard performs some of Warren’s standards and gives a history of famous Italian American crooners who also sang his songs.
