    Netflix launches "Lilyhammer," a series made for Norwegian television. In it you'll find almost every known stereotype of Italian/American culture that you can imagine.

    Stefano M. Ross(February 25, 2012)
    Waiting for the concert on March 1st, we met with Marco Cappelli (guitar) and Jim Pugliese (drums). They promise “to rock the house” when they play at Roulette with Doug Wieselman (clarinet), Josè Davila (trombone) and Ken Filiano (bass)—and with DJ Logic as a special guest.
  • Along with the various observations that have been made by three of our esteemed colleagues (De Stefano, Gardaphé, Krase), and I must emphasize that I am in agreement as well with other sentiments that they raise, one must indeed recognize the merits of Roberto Saviano’s work these past four-plus years. He has put himself, literally, on the line, and we might readily agree that no “fame” or “wealth,” however significant or insignificant it may be, is worth the risk.
  • Passione di John Turturro
    January 20 (6.00 pm). John Turturro is scheduled to meet with Cardinal of Naples Crescenzio Sepe and Antonio Monda at Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò. Moderated by Stefano Albertini, they will speak about Naples. Clips from Turturro's latest film, Passione, will be shown
  • Two (or perhaps three) people with Italian-sounding last names are simultaneously running for governor of the State of New York. This means that Italian American voters will have to decide between them. My advice to them is find out on which side your bread is buttered and which one of them would butter it better as governor.
