  • AcquAria, singing about Sicily.
    Drawing inspiration from Sicily, its culture, people, history and music, AcquAria is a goup that carries the audience to faraway sandy beaches, “it is the force of desire and the force of the accompanying emotions that make Sicilian music stand apart from other traditions. It is this desire and these emotions that touch one’s soul and connect one to others be they our present neighbors or be they a people who lived centuries ago.”
  • The 35-film series pays homage to one of the all-time great Hollywood directors of Italian descent, with a career that included successful forays into the musical (which earned him his reputation at MGM), subversive and deeply personal melodramas and sensitive biopics, and airy comedies.
  • The Second Annual Domenico (“Domenick”) Spadaro Memorial Drive was held on Saturday August 13, 2011 in White Plains, NY in honor of the beloved Sicilian garagiste whose unique legacy as an Italian artisanal mechanic roars on.

From September 4-12, they will travel to some of the most spectacular places in Sicily, including Taormina, Palermo, the Aeolian Islands, Cefalu', and Mount Etna.
