Italian journalist Lucio Luca joined Texas State March 26 for a special lecture on his latest book.
Luca focused on Sicilian immigrants who found their way to success in the United States. Luca was joined by his editor, Maria Elena Vittorietti, and the only two native Sicilians living in Texas, Fabio and Tiziana Triolo.
Luca chose to give his lecture in Italian to better explain the details of his work. Professor Moira DiMauro-Jackson translated.
Luca is the author of “On the Other Side of the Moon: Sicilians in the US who have succeeded.” The book features the stories of 22 Sicilians living in the United States.
Luca said there are hundreds of thousands of success stories, and those in the bok are just the 22 people he was lucky enough to know.
