Texan Italian Stories

"The Italians from the Bottom" (in English)

Following a story told by one of the Texan Italians we interviewed in our last video named Joe Perrone, we ended up in the towns of Bryan and Hearne. There we found one of the most amazing italian communities of Texas.

 

This episode features very interesting interviews with the Denena family of Hearne, Dr Leonardo Lombardini from A&M University, Joe Perrone's Aunt Lena, the Lampo family,

and the nice folks from the Royalty Pecan farms. 

 

We're extremely excited about our special musical guest, Sicilian Carmelo Salemi! Song featured "Alveari" from the album "HYBLA"
