About the Video:
This June 2013 Recap episode titled "Rekindle the Flame" includes:
Our exploration into the tagline "Italy inspire U.S." which has been adopted as part of the Year of Italian Culture in the U.S. initiative.
A glimpse into the fascinating story of Texan Italian sculptor Pompeo Coppini, a northern Italian who moved to Texas in the early 1900's and made some of the most important monuments in our state.
Our take of two important Texan Italian events that took place in early June in both Austin and Houston:
- The "Giorno della Repubblica Italiana" event in Austin, TX - (Texan Italian Highlighted: Martin Morales)
- The "Rekindle the Flame" event in Houston, Tx - (Texan Italian Highlighted: Tiziana Triolo)
Plus tons of great opinions by brilliant Texan Italians, footage from Coppini's sculptures, beautiful old pictures from some early Italian settlers... We dare you to watch the entire episode doing the same Yoga pose!
We're extremely excited about our special musical guest, Sicilian Carmelo Salemi!
