Italian text

The author is a profound connoisseur of the United States, where for many years he worked as a journalist and university professor and gathered many memories which he used to paint a vast fresco as a tribute to the Italian American community.
The first part, divided into six short stories are of “true authenticity”, is dedicated to the extraordinary adventures of several Italian immigrants, especially Sicilians, who arrived in the new continent in the twenties in search of fortune: many of them later found it.
In the second part, Cordaro narrates key episodes in American history which he witnessed first hand thanks to relationships he was able to strengthen, starting in aftermath of the war with many outstanding figures: he was, in fact, very close to the Kennedy family and Umberto II of Savoy arranged to meet with him during his trip to the USA.
A work that reveals many behind the scene facts and anecdotes unknown to the general public, from a writer who is able to captivate with his passionate style and convince with his authenticity.
