ABOUT ANTHONY

Anthony Riccio grew up in an old ethnic neighborhood of New Haven, Connecticut, where the constant hum of the local American Steel and Wire mill could be heard in the well-tended backyards of Italian immigrants.

He returned to the ancestral villages of his grandparents while pursuing an M.A. from Syracuse University in Florence, Italy and photgraphed daily life in the rural villages of the south. Anthony later became the director of the North End Senior Citizen Center in Boston, where he conducted oral-history interviews and photgraphed elderly Italian Americans of the North End neighborhood, and wrote his first publication: "Boston's North End: Images and Recollections of an Italian-American Neighborhood" Anthony lives in Westbrook, Connecticut.
