FlavorsoftheNorthEnd.com is featuring a video taken a few years ago of John Rega interviewing the North End’s Vincenzo DiGangi, former publisher of Boston’s North End Magazine. “This walking tour brought back memories of my past when I was a child growing up in the North & West End of Boston. During the 20th Century, this area was the beginning for many europeans who were destined to find their place in America.”
John, a.k.a. Angie’s son, was raised in the North End, with his relatives, the Fuccillo and De La Rosa families, who are still an important part of the community. Vincenzo DiGangi takes John back to the streets where he played “aggies” on water department man-hole covers.
