  • A quiet afternoon on a New York summer sunday. And suddenly from Italy comes the statement of the Deputy President of the Senate Calderoli. He just compared Minister Cécile Kyenge, the first-ever African-Italian government official to an orangutan. Astonished by such gross callousness, we immediately asked a comment from Anthony Tamburri, Dean of the Calandra Italian American Institute of CUNY, the largest academic institution in the U.S. dedicated to the study of the Italian-American experience.
