Il Ritorno

The President of the Columbus Citizens Foundation and the Dean of the Calandra Italian American Institute talk about Italy, the "land of their return". And about their first experience with an Italian "piazza".

 Anthony Tamburri*: For Virgil’s Aeneas, Italy was the “land of our return”—the place his ancestor Darmanus left generations earlier. How would you describe your return to Italy, when you went to there to receive the “Filippo Mazzei” award and you visited the towns of Lacedonia and Calitri for the first time?
