THE ITALIAN IMMIGRANTS' DAUGHTER (by mother & daughter) - 5 in stock; + complimentary vintage festival pin
If you grew up with a nonna, you will relate to these stories written by mother and daughter raised by Italian immigrants - in the forefront, Antonica Cabras Mossa from Sardinia, Italy. Gina Mossa Molino, 87, shares anecdotes of growing up in the 1930-40s in Brooklyn, New York and on the island of Sardinia under strict Italian immigrant parents and grandparents. In 1946 at age 12, she was plucked from American life and shipped across the ocean with her two siblings and mamma Antonica after their papa Giovanni died tragically in Baltimore.
Her daughter, Suzanna Rosa Molino, then shares memories of growing up with Nonna Antonica, using vintage photos, amusing and emotional anecdotes, and describing the continued connection today with their large Mossa famiglia still in Sardinia.
