Regions of Italy seen through portraits, costumes and biographies at the Garibaldi Meucci Museum!

 By Tiziano Thomas Dossena

Great innovative exhibit at the Garibaldi Meucci Museum thanks to artist William John Castello, writer Marianna Biazzo Randazzo, and OSDIA Trustee Maryanne Prince.This exhibit is the fourth installation in a series of six highlighting the regions, traditional dress, and people of Italy. Mr. Castello provided the portraits of some of the famous people from each region of Italy and Mrs. Randazzo wrote their biographies.Regional costumes were contributed thanks to the efforts of Mrs. Prince, who had the original idea of making them and obtained the goal though the generous participation of OSDIA and other sources, and the willingness of seamstresses who created the dresses just from images.

The exhibit is exciting and it’s offering a view of Italy as a puzzle of regions who amalgamated into a country but still retained their characteristics. To know how many important people each region has offered to the world certainly is rewarding and makes us all very proud.The beautifully compiled biographies are an excellent complement to the wonderful drawings by Mr. Castello.

It’s an exhibit not to miss!
