Little Italy Trip

Honors Program Spring 2008 Little Italy Trip

April 11, 2008

This past April, students from the Students Honors Advisory Council (SHAC) planned a group trip to Little Italy in order to learn about the area, its history, residents, and to get a sample taste of Italian-American culture. We began our trip at the Mural outside the area’s entrance. Our resident guide, Frank Fiorilli, met us there and explained the meaning behind the artwork. He continued his talk at Holy Rosary Church. We learned about the history of the area, his history in the area, as well as Little Italy today. Frank joined us for dinner at Mama Santa’s, where he was able to answer our questions about the area.
