ABOUT The Lt. Joseph Petrosino Lodge #285: was formed by John Fratta and Robert Fonti in February 1999, and is the only remaining OSIA lodge in Manhattan. The Order Sons of Italy itself was formed in 1905 in the very same neighborhood. The Lodge is named after Lt. Giuseppe (Joe) Petrosino (1860-1909), the first Italian-American Police Lieutenant of the New York City Police Department. The Petrosino Lodge, whose current President is William Bray, produces and supports many charitable, cultural and social events throughout the year, raises funds for cancer research, Cooley's Anemia, Autism and other causes, and most recently hosted a Christmas party for the children of the Henry Street Settlement House. Emelise Aleandri was a former president of the Lodge.

 

ABOUT: IAWA was founded in 1991 to promote Italian-American literature by encouraging the writing, reading, publication, distribution, translation, and study of Italian-American writing and to give Italian-American writers a public forum where the full range of Italian-American expression could find a hearing. IAWA has nurtured the growth of a genuine community of Italian-American readers and writers. Prof. Robert Viscusi, Broeklundian Professor and Executive Officer of the Wolfe Institute for the Humanities at Brooklyn College, is President and Founder of IAWA. Last year he served on the OSIA Grand Lodge Literary Award Committee, chaired by recently deceased Past President Emelise Aleandri. The 2nd Saturday Readings is the longest running literary series in Greenwich Village.
