    Re: De Wick - Iucci mandolins

    Gennaro Iucci (b. 1855) and his son Michael (b. 1884) had a factory on Broome St. Since some of the links don't work, I thought I'd upload this advertisement of Michael's harp guitar which I found in...

    When my HEROES book began to take shape, gosh, 4-5 years ago, I had to decide on the geographical areas where the Italian communities were significant enough. I purposely left Chicago out for several...

    Yes, I've read the books and you've read my mind. I already know that I want John Turturro to direct and star in it. I'd cast him as Tafarella! I've not thought about the other composers but I'd like...
