PAUL JEFFKO 217 W COTA ST SHELTON WA 98584-2263 / ~ THE ITALIAN-AMERICAN VOICE OF MASSACHUSETTS mJ (Formerly LA GAZZETTA del MASSACHUSETTS) VOL. 118 - NO. 26 BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, JUNE 27, 2014 $.35 A COPY Italy Left Licking Their Wounds Following Controversial Clash with Uruguay The 20th Quadrennial World Cup tournament is over for Italy after just three matches. Coupled with the South African failure of four years ago, Italy has now gone two straight tournaments without advancing from the group stage, matching their 1962 and 1966 counterparts for futility. After defeating England in their opening match, Italy subsequently lost their next two matches, versus Costa Rica, and Uruguay without scoring a goal. The Costa Rica match is one that the Azzurri should have won, easily. Falling behind just before the intermission of a first half that Italy was push- ing for the opening goal, but failed to generate a solid chance. The underrated Costa Ricans, led by a ster- ling defense and who ulti- mately finished atop the Group D standings, domi- nated the second half, tak- ing the match 1:0. All was not lost after this embarrassment however as Italy needed only a draw to advance to the knockout roundsbased on a better goal differential compared to that of Uruguay. However what we watched versus Uruguay was a con- servative team that seemed to be playing for a draw rather than a win. This game plan nearly worked. How- ever, tied in the 81st minute, Diego Godin headed past by Christian A. Guarino the diving grasp of Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon. "The technical set-up didn't work, and I take all respon- sibility for that." stated Coach Cesare Prandelli. Prandelli went all in with striker Mario Balotelli, who aside from a goal in the opener was a major disappointment. The second half versus Uruguay was filled with controversy. The first was a questionable red card to Claudio Marchisio who was guilty of a reckless chal- lenge to midfielder Egidio Arevalo, but a straight red card was not merited. The ultimate injustice came when Luis Suarez, notoriously referred to as "the vampire," Marehisio looks on, stunned as Referee Marco Rodriguez issues a red card. lunged at defender Giorgio Rodriguez, a Mexican official Chiellini. Chiellini appealed whose own nickname is to Referee Marco Antonio Dracula because of his Rodriguez, motioning to hisresemblance to a version of left shoulder, which revealed two bite marks.

Donnaruma, who, in 1896, founded La Gazetta del Massachusetts. The exhibit "One Nation with News for All," mounted in partnership with the Smithsoniau Institution, tells the dramatic story of how immi- grants and minorities used the power of the press to fight for their rights and shape the American experience. "I was thoroughly moved and quite emotional," said Mary N. DiZazzo, who viewed the exhibit earlier this month along with her husband David TrumbuU, also Post-Gazette columnists, and their publisher Pare and her friend Louie. Mary said she is proud to have been the beauty culture colum- nist, All That Zazz, for almost a dozen years.

Attendees participated in an Italian and English mass at Saint Leonard's Church organized by the Friends of Padre Pio fol- lowed by food and beverages and then went on to walk the streets of the North End, car- rying the statue of St. Pio from St. Leonard Church through the neighborhood, where devotees pinned donations on ribbons. Over $ 7,000 was collected, which all will go towards the church. It seems that every year the procession becomes more popular as this.year has been the biggest one yet, with approximately a thousand people fol- lowing the statue at the beginning. The pro- cession was accompanied by the North End Marching Band. Saint Pio was canonized by Pope John Paul II on June 16 in 2002. He was born Francesco Forgione and became known as Natalina Tizzano, Anna D'Amore Sirignano and Maria Cuccinelli. (Continued on Page 8)
