Author Talk Video: “From Italy to Boston’s North End – The Photographs of Anthony V. Riccio 1972-1982”

Anthony V. Riccio recently presented photographs from his book From Italy to Boston’s North End – The Photographs of Anthony V. Riccio 1972-1982. 

The book documents the arc of the Italian American immigration experience with images of daily life taken in the rural villages of southern Italy to everyday life in Boston’s North End during the 1970’s and early 1980’s. Riccio worked at the ABCD Center in the North End at the time and documented the life of many residents in this book with 236 photos.

The 1 hour, 27 minute video has three main sections:

(00:00) Introduction of author Anthony V. Riccio background of the book and the author’s experience

(18:00) Photographs from daily life in Italy

(44:00) Photographs of Boston’s North End
