Italian and American flags

The North End Historical Society is looking for support to make a documentary on Italian-Americans in the North End in Boston, MA. The North End has been home to Italian-American community for over 100 years. The film will be narrated by North End native Stephen Passacantilli. The film is based on interviews with North End natives and their descendents living in the Boston-area. “It will preserve a way of life that has all but disappeared from Boston.” If you are interested in donating, you can visit their website.
