Students from Abruzzo Visit Boston by Nicola Orichuia A group of 13 students from the Abruzzese town of Sulmona recently visited Boston as part of their school's "La Merica" project. The trip was geared to teach the students the deep ties that still connect Italy and the Italian heritage commu- nities in the United States. Professors Carc>lina Lettieri and Caterina Fantauzzi led the group of students from the Giovanbattista Vico High School through their research and accompanied the group on their 7-day trip on the other side of the ocean. "It was a truly unique and interestin, g trip for our stu- dents," said school director Caterina Fantauzzi, who helped coordinate the pro- gram from Italy. "Before com- ing to Boston they visited Ellis Island in New York. They felt at home right away, thanks to the hospi- tality of Donato and Filippo Frattaroli." On Sunday, March 20, the students had the chance to speak to vari- ous Italian Americans dur- ing a party organized by Filippo Frattaroli. "This trip has given our school the chance to lay the bases for future cultural exchanges and new teaching opportuni- ties," said Fantauzzi. Before leaving, the students had a chance to listen and talk to Rosetta Romagnoli, presi- dent of the Associazione Abruzzesi di Boston, who was visiting Italy at the time. Ideally; the teachers would like to collect the students' stories into a book to be pub- lished by the end of the school year. The book would include reports, short sto- ries, pictures and letters col- lected during their brief stay on the East Coast. The ma- terial would be added to a list of emigrants from Sulmona who came to Boston over the past 120 years. "The goal is to get more and more people to know a fundamental piece of our history," said Professor Carolina Lettieri, who accompanied the stu- dents. For the past several years, as the "La Merica" project grew, students have been able to set up two dif- ferent exhibits in Sulmona's "Palazzo della Santissima Annunziata." 37 th Annual Town Fair Tire World of Wheels Hosts Discovery Channel's American Choppers The 37 ta annual Town Fair Tire World of Wheels ( custom car show and motor- sports expo hosts the Discovery Channel's "American Choppers" series in the person of star Paul Teutle Sr., on Saturday, April 2.
