Meet the Author


Born 12 years apart, coauthors and siblings Pamela Ciafardini Casebolt and Philip G. Ciafardini grew up on Spaghetti Knob in South Newport. Their childhood memories of the people on "The Hill" and the Italian community inspired this book. Pam worked 28 years at Cincinnati Bell Telephone, retiring in April 2001. Phil retired in November 2005 after serving the City of Newport for 22 years, with the last seven years as city manager. Both serve the community through various organizations and promote their Italian heritage as members of the Newport Italianfest Committee, which organizes the activities for the four-day event. In 2006, the festival concluded its 15th year.

    Full of superb pictures and information

    The authors collected tons of pictures and family information for many Italian families that settled in the Newport, Kentucky area. It is fascinating to see all of the old pictures. If you are into family history, this is the book for you.
