This June 2013 Recap episode titled "Rekindle the Flame" includes:

 

- Our exploration into the tagline "Italy inspire U.S." which has been adopted as part of the Year of Italian Culture in the U.S. initiative.

 

- A glimpse into the fascinating story of Texan Italian sculptor Pompeo Coppini, a northern Italian who moved to Texas in the early 1900's and made some of the most important monuments in our state.

 

- Our take of two important Texan Italian events that took place in early June in both Austin and Houston:
The "Giorno della Repubblica Italiana" event in Austin, TX - (Texan Italian Highlighted: Martin Morales)
The "Rekindle the Flame" event in Houston, Tx - (Texan Italian Highlighted: Tiziana Triolo)

 

- Plus tons of great opinions by brilliant Texan Italians, footage from Coppini's sculptures, beautiful old pictures from some early Italian settlers...
