Attn: Italian Americans in St. Louis from Cinisi, Sicily. The mayor of Cinisi recently visited a few cities in the United States. During this tour he made a call to the President of Italian American Heritage Corporation and the Federation of Italian American Organizations in St. Louis, Jay DiMaggio, whose family comes from Cinisi. During the conversation the mayor told him that during the trip he had discovered there was also a large population in St. Louis MO. He apologized for not knowing this before the trip, but wanted to acknowledge that he had heard of the good works of the people from Cinisi living in St. Louis.
