NOW RELEASED!  From Italy to Boston's North End - The Photographs of Anthony V. Riccio 1972-1982   SUNY Press


Anthony's New Book:
From Italy To The North End: Photographs, 1972-1982

Anthony Riccio’s photographs retrace the arc of immigration from ancestral villages in Italy to Boston’s North End, documenting a lost world of an Italian American culture. His images will forever remind Italian Americans of the places their families left behind and the new home they created in America. — Umberto Mucci, author of We the Italians: Two Flags, One Heart. One Hundred Interviews

Riccio’s photos magnificently capture daily life of Italians in the South of Italy and in Boston in the 1970s and ’80s. Everyday people and their environment are brought back to life through an intense and moving visual testimony, seasoned with love. — Margherita Ganeri, Università della Calabria
