Mario Fumarola

Fumarola's collection of essays is a compendium of hope and of survival of Italian immigrants who came to America with the idea of working hard to achieve their goals at a time when dreams were bordered by limitations of the circumstances of the depression era and beyond. They brought with them time-honored customs of close family ties, and of respect, love and compassion not only for their immediate families but also their church, their friends and even acquaintances. Fumarola gives us a vivid insight into the hearts and minds of a people who believed in the solidarity of relationships and who exhibited a deep moral consciousness of what is right.  (Re:Italian immigrants.)  $15.95 Click image to order.
