A bit of Italy in New YorkPubblicato il 24 January 2017
The Italian Cultural Institute in New York is an elegant and discreet building in Park Avenue, when the city looked to the British models. The occasion yesterday was really amazing: Michael Cunningham, the Pulitzer Prize, was reading a dreamy and inspiring piece he wrote about Matera.
My thoughts turn to those magical places, led to our amazing history and culture. I thought to my land, to our emigrants, to this little piece of home overseas.
I stopped going out to the desk, to leave my address for the next events. Before my interlocutor a red box of AMARELLI licorice.
“Are you from Calabria?” I immediately asked him “Yes, a little village near Rossano. When I go to Italy I do hoard of them ”
How such a small piece of Italy helps us to keep our roots!
