The Sons of Italy Fiorella LaGuardia Lodge #2867 hosted Gaetano Cipolla, professor emeritus at St. John’s University, at its meeting Thursday at the Old Mill Yacht Club in Howard Beach.

Cipolla, a winner of the Telamone prize from the Italian city of Agrigento, for advancing peace and a sense of community, spoke about the origin, grammar and modern use of the Sicilian language, spoken in Sicily and the Calabria region of southern Italy.

At the presentation above are William Aiello, immediate past president of the lodge; Cipolla; and current President Rosemary Ciulla-Frisone.

Welcome to the discussion.
