Simboli Nortfi End natives Maryann and Richie Longo celebrated their 50 TM Anniversary with a party hosted by their daughters Tracy and Lynn at The Capital Grille. For the couple, who have shared a lifetime of won- derful memories, it was an unforgettable evening spent with close family and friends, in particular their two grandchildren Joseph and Richard. With music from the 1950s and 60s, it was a time spent remi- niscing for all present. Champagne along with red and white wine flowed throughout the evening accompanied with a meal consisting of pan-filed calamari with hot cherry peppers, miniature lobster and crab cakes, clam chowder, French onion soup, filet mignon, all natural herb roasted chicken, seared citrus glazed salmon, bone in Kona crusted dry aged sixloix mth shallot butter and the lovely couple's anniversary cake. Maryann and Richie are the proprietors of the Comer Caf6 on Prince Street and Amici Restaurant located on North Washington Street. Many thanks to their wonderful daughters for an evening none of us will forget. J L'Anno Be|lo (Continued from Page 4) into the importance on nour- ishment, health and com- munity amongst Italians. As symbols of Italian heritage and history, these nuggets of folklore further represent the ingenuity and values of our ancestors. This time of the year, it is easy to think upon the su- pernatural. Halloween deco- rations like eerie glowing jack-o-lanterns and white- sheeted ghosts beckon at us from storefronts and door- ways. Yellow and brown leaves swirl against a cloudy sky, and the howl of the wind calls to mind wailing spirits or mournful werewolves. Yet when we think of the most famous Halloween symbol of all, the witch, we should know that she is rooted in a complex history of folklore, feminine power, and cross- cultural traditions. In Italy as elsewhere in Europe, the people later maligned as witches were actually the folk healers and wise women of ancient villages. Many of the lore and prac- tices surrounding this age- old traditions continue to be recognized and seen in Italy today. So with Halloween quickly upon us, it is right to think of the magical side of Italy as well. No wonder it has been called such a be- witching countryl Ally Di Censo Symynkywicz is a Graduate Student in History at the University of Massachusetts Boston.
