This is a story of an Italian family, their trials and tribulations of coming to America and the struggles they endured building a new life. It is a story of love, laughter, heartache, and passion as the author grew up in North Denver's Little Italy, served in England in WW II, his first love, his wife and his family. Follow his ancestors and his growth as a young Italian boy in the 1920's, to a soldier in the 40's, and to a husband and father. See how this Old Italian views the world and a generation gone by.
Papa is quite the character. It is for this reason that the publisher has minimized the editing of this book. We wanted to preserve the style, tone, and mannerisms of this Ninety year-old author. His memoir is a slice of Americana whose journey takes us from late 19th Century Italy, through several world wars, to present day Little Italy in North Denver Colorado. We hope you enjoy his journey as much as we did.

About the Author

I am a 90 year old Italian man, born and raised in "Little Italy" of North Denver. I have written what has been in my heart for many, many, years. The events that made up my life, what my eyes have seen, my ears have heard and about all the many influential individuals that God was kind enough to send my way. I have walked the many indistinguishable roads of life and I tried to retain all I could in my head, I promised my heart that someday the time would come for me to write, so here it is.
