Renato Cantore from the Basilicata RAI network recently released a new book, “Il Castello sull’Hudson”. The book is about Charles Paterno who emigrated from nearby Castlemezzano to New York City where he made his fortune in the construction business. The release of a book in Italy does not involve book signings but a presentazione of the book to the public in a special event. Dottore Cantore asked Valerie to participate in this presentation to provide an American point of view. This was quite an honor as this took place in the theater in downtown Potenza and was attended by many of the political and academic notables of our Region.
Dottore Cantore recently wrote a small piece about Valerie and our move to Basilicata from New Mexico on the RAI blog dedicated to reaching out to Italian emigrants located around the world. This also has a link to the video piece that ran on RAI about us from February 2012.
