Cav. John F. Calvelli
Executive V.P., National Italian American Foundation
You are cordially invited to attend a special 35 minute preview of the new 4 hour documentary film, The Italian Americans at the Italian American Museum on Thursday, January 22nd. The film premieres February 17, 2015 on PBS stations nationwide. The Italian Americans, narrated by Stanley Tucci, explores the evolution of Italian Americans from the late 19th Century to today, from “outsiders” once viewed with suspicion and mistrust, to some of the most prominent leaders of business, politics and the arts today. Award winning writer/producer John Maggio (Billy The Kid, Boy in the Bubble) presents a portrait of Italian American life that includes interviews with Tony Bennet, John Turturro, Gay Talese, Representative Nancy Pelosi and Associate Justice Antonin Scalia, among others. The Italian Americans peels away myths and stereotypes to reveal a world uniquely Italian and uniquely American.
The evening’s program will commence with an introduction by Cav. John F. Calvelli, Executive Vice President of the National Italian American Foundation. Cav. Calvelli will also participate in a “Question and Answer” period following the film.
