Raffaela Marie Rizzo Authorspeak, 'From Italy to Norwalk With Love'

Friday, September 23, 2016

Raffaela Marie Rizzo Authorspeak, 'From Italy to Norwalk With Love' his story is based on the life of a man named Michelangelo Rizzo, known as Michele to his family and later Mike to everyone else. It reads like a novel and spans eighty years, two continents and several U.S. states. The story opens in 1909 as this thirteen-year-old fatherless boy leaves his hometown of Platania in the mountains of southern Italy on a solo journey to find the grave of the man whose blood runs in his veins, a man he cannot possibly remember. Through flashbacks, we come to understand the circumstances and challenges faced by Mike’s father and millions of others who were part of a thirty-year migration to the Americas in the late 1880s and early part of the Twentieth Century.Co sponsored by the National Organization of Italian American Women. A light lunch will be served Details to follow For more information, please call Cynde Lahey at 203 899 2780 x 15133
