In North Korea : An elderly woman is photographed with black eyes and bruises. She sits, tied to a chair, under the threatening gaze of a female guard. Her crime: Praying. In Palestine: Christian parents hold a photograph of their missing son.

He was abducted by Islamic fundamentalists. Authorities claim the boy willingly converted to Islam. In Yemen: Christians face extinction. They are caught between warring Islamic groups who agree on nothing else but their hatred for Christians. In Sudan: Military aircraft are often sent by the Islamic government in Khartoum to destroy churches. Children are recruited. Boys, some of whom are just 10 years old, are armed with light machine guns. They order Christian men to recite the Shahada - claim God is one and Muhammed the prophet - or be killed.

In Egypt, a Coptic church was destroyed by a suicide bomber who claimed the lives of people worshiping inside. Oppression by the Erdogan-led government is the reason. Only one cleric of each Christian faith can be seen in public. Only one Christian holiday can be celebrated each year. Christian celebrations are forbidden, unless approved by the government. In Libya: One of the most horrific images in history. Christian men in orange prison clothes were marched to a beach by black clad, face masked Islamists. One by one had their heads sawed off by tormenters.

The carnage faced northeast in the direction of Rome. The Vatican. The Holy See. The throne of Saint Peter. The message was obvious: All Christians are infidels. All are to be killed. They spoke firsthand about persecution. Data mining and drone surveillance locate churches slated for military assault. China forbids religious education. State media mocks and misrepresents the activities of new congregations. On display was a photograph of a young Chinese Christian woman attacked by a group of Chinese soldiers. She says her group is frequently targeted by the Chinese government.

Many churchgoers have been unduly arrested, she says, just for practicing their faith. We cannot in China. Our people are arrested. Our photographs are taken. We are not allowed to share our story. We have church members who are taken to prison camps. We cannot see them. Cases of Christian persecution were well-documented at the press conference with special focus on Nigeria. Members of the International Committee on Nigeria, an organization based in Falls Church, Virginia, spoke about their experiences. Nigeria is a country with the most Christians in Africa - some 80 million, according to Pew Research.

Yet, each day, they are threatened and harassed by Islamic forces inside and outside the government. Most pressing are the needs of Christians in the Lake Chad region in northern Nigeria. Reports of atrocities are many; such as the time when Christian children were rounded up to watch their parents executed by Islamic militiamen.

Another case had as its focus the Nigerian military. The army had ordered the evacuation of Christian and Islamic villages due to civil conflicts in the region. When the battle ended, those from the Islamic villages were allowed to return to their homes, but not the Christians. The military said their villages were not recognized by the Nigerian government.

They never existed. This is not a war of one tribe versus another. This is not a war of one region against another. These are Muslims killing Christians. One speaker said he was kidnapped by Islamic terrorists not once, but twice. They thought I was Muslim. They did not know that Christians and Muslims can share the same name. We are named after the Jewish patriarch, Jacob. He claimed that young Muslims there increasingly look to Islamic terrorists as models of violence.

Assaults against Christians are not limited to the body. Christians are often discriminated against and unable to find work or get an education in Nigeria. The military will frequently take church property, according to one speaker. The church building is demolished and the foundation excavated. Property records are destroyed. It is as if entire Christian communities never existed there. He gave credit for this to President Donald J. Attacks on Christians declined almost immediately after the president spoke out against Christian persecution when he met with Nigerian president, Muhammadu Buhari, at the White House in April.

The future remains tenuous. West Africa is at the precipice of Islamic domination, according to several speakers yesterday. Rather, it is the pursuance of an Islamic caliphate. What pervades there is the spirit of Wahhabism, a branch of Islam from Saudi Arabia that sees all Christians as infidels. Persecution of Christians in Nigerian is a means to an end.

Tyranny awaits. The inheritor of Mohammed will come. He will control West Africa. He will enforce Sharia law, as now imposed in Nigeria, for the entire region. Islam will then be the sole religion. Christianity will be extinct in West Africa. The struggle to save Christians worldwide is the story of the century. The worship of Christ now begets a death sentence.

The future is a time for martyrs. Save The Persecuted Christians is an organization with a cause for all Americans to embrace. Editor's Note: Save the Persecuted Christians will provide a banner to your church to help bring greater awareness to Americans on the plight of Christians in Africa and Asia. He was the quiet hero. John Cavicchi died on February 19 in Florida surrounded by his family and friends.

Two decades passed since he achieved one of the greatest victories in American jurisprudence. And yet, few people know about him. John was not a braggart. He was stoic and rock solid. He did not seek the limelight. Rarely was he mentioned or profiled in the news media. He never appeared on cable news shows.

Although worthy, he was never the guest commentator, the legal expert or savant jurist who could expound on the ins and outs of criminal justice. We published an article on him in and rightly praised his miraculous defense of Louis Greco and Peter Limone. They were all given life sentences and each spent 30 years in prison for crimes they did not commit.

Prosecutors had persuaded a jury then that since the foursome were Italian they had been members of the Mafia. From beginning to end, the case was a ruse. The accused were victims of a frame by FBI agents H. Paul Rico and Dennis Condon and their key informant, Joseph Barboza, who, as it turned, was the real murderer. The ensuring police investigation had run cold. No suspects were named. The FBI, however, knew the identity of the murderers.

Deuxième partie. Des mots et des images. L’édition scientifique

Some years earlier, the feds had wire tapped the office of Raymond Patriarca, the reputed mob boss of New England. Listening in on conversations among local mobsters, FBI agents heard Barboza and Flemmi request and receive the order to kill Deegan. By , Barboza had found himself in prison serving out sentences for unrelated crimes. He was to become their informant.

An agreement was brokered to get Barboza released from prison in exchange for his information on the New England Mafia. He was interrogated by state detectives about the murder of Deegan. He then lied by saying he was ordered to do so by Peter Limone. He then falsely implicated Greco, Salvati and Tameleo. The FBI agents said nothing to the police as to the innocence of accused. They did not share the evidence in their possession with local police. Cavicchi began representing Greco in and Limone in He was the lawyer who won Mr.

They can prove this with relative ease based on the work I did.

Marine Corps. He sought to be a tenacious attorney committed to the best defense of his clients. I was referred to him by a past client. I was struck by his story and his unwavering belief in his innocence. I agreed to represent him and reviewed the case. His client took and passed several lie detector tests. Greco was in Miami at the time of the murder, according to many eyewitnesses; none of whom were called to testify at the original trial.

A main cause of delay was bigotry: Since Greco was Italian American, he was presumed guilty by many in the justice system. At times, I thought they did not even read the case. They did not look at the evidence. They tried to push it aside. Bury it. They made believe nothing wrong happened. There was always an assumption that since they were Italian they were involved in criminal activity. They were submitting false information during hearings.

He kept filing petitions and motions. He kept digging. More evidence was uncovered that proved again and again his client was innocent. In , Greco died of colon cancer in prison. All convictions were then vacated. Meanwhile, the Justice Department convened an internal investigation that proved FBI agents had framed the defendants and covered up their crime.

Although Cavicchi was a key factor in overturning the wrongful convictions of Greco, Limone and others, he had to sue another attorney and his former client to participate in the eventual lawsuit. They were innocent and should have been released long ago. I came to realize how few people perform their roles. Many people do not do their jobs. There were some exceptions but most people did not come through. Seeing how ethnic prejudices and bigotry worked against his clients, Cavicchi began to look inward and rediscovered his Italian heritage.

I was all-American, through and through. I attend language schools in Italy. I speak Italian. I read books on Italian history and ancient Rome. I have become a true Italian American. The angels now greet him with the rewards of justice. Elizabeth Bartman and Maureen Fant conceive and lead tours throughout Italy. Their expertise is on archaeology and gourmet food. PRIMO interviewed them both on future Italian destinations and what makes their touring company different than others.

But our interest in Italy goes way back, to our studies of classics and archaeology. We both spent an undergraduate semester in Rome and kept returning. Summarize, if you will, the sites seen and insights gained from visiting Italy through your company. Archaeology is the study of the material past, the actual things people built, made, and used. The word may sound arcane, but all cultures have archaeology.

Archaeology tells us how ancient peoples lived, what they ate, how they buried their dead, made art, etc. Liz is a trained art historian with interests and knowledge that go way beyond antiquity. Tour participants emphatically do not need to arrive already familiar with the intricacies of Greco-Roman architecture or Romanesque bas-reliefs. Everything gets explained in plain English. We treat food as culture and history as well as something to be enjoyed in the moment. Wherever possible, we make connections, draw lines, if you will, between the ancient remains and what people ate then, now, and in more recent local tradition.

Take our flagship Rome tour as an example. During the week we visit a manmade mountain made of discarded vessels that once held oil and wine, aqueducts that brought pure spring water over hundreds of miles, an imperial villa with a seaside dining room decorated with spectacular statues, and much more.

Availability

On this tour, like all our tours, we get special permissions to visit places that are normally closed to the public. We also draw on our extensive professional and personal networks to bring in special lecturers and guides—sometimes even the archaeologist who excavated the site. Your focus is on both archaeology and food. Is there a connection between the two endeavors? If so, how? Yes, there is a connection, in many ways. On another level, so much of archaeology is about food. All that pottery—whether for storage, transport, kitchen, or table—contained food.

All those temples had altars where animals were sacrificed—and then eaten. Ancient trade was about much more than marble and minerals; it was about wine, wheat, and spices. Our Rome tour is all about supplying and feeding the ancient city—interspersed with great meals and experiences to illustrate how Romans eat today and have traditionally eaten in the same places in more recent history.

A classical archaeologist looks at a society as a whole through its material remains, not just at the important figures in history and literature. In early societies, much of the economy was food-related. Archaeological sites are all over Italy. Your company plans and leads tours throughout Italy. Share with us some highlights of these and other places in Italy that you plan to visit.

Our tours are one thrill after another! At a cooking school in the smallest town in Sardinia population 82 , we helped make a fantastic lunch then climbed to the top of a prehistoric stone tower nuraghe. In Positano, we visited a newly excavated Roman villa beneath the main piazza it took months to get permission.

Lunch that day was a seafood tour de force at a Michelin-starred restaurant way out on the Sorrento peninsula. And have you ever had ricotta di bufala? We concentrate on the much-less-touristed northern part of the Lazio region. There are so many wonderful things to see in Italy, that it must be difficult, at times, which one to pick and choose to visit.

We normally do that by identifying clusters of archaeological sites and great archaeological museums around which we can build a week-long itinerary. Surprisingly, not every part of Italy is equally archaeology-intensive. Everywhere in Italy has great food. There may be more Michelin stars in one area, more great rustic trattorias in another, but we love it all. Thus we can fit the food itinerary around the site visits. In the case of Emilia-Romagna, we pretty much built the itinerary around the food, following the Po river from the province of Piacenza to the Adriatic.

We like to cover the whole spectrum of dining, from unreconstructed tradition to up-to-the-minute interpretations of local specialties. The only thing we avoid is food that is totally irrelevant to where we are. What gets a particular spot onto the itinerary? Sometimes a place is too important to ignore plus we love it —say, Selinunte, in Sicily, or Barumini, in Sardinia.

But mostly, we seek out the places in our chosen area that we think our participants might overlook and kick themselves later for missing them , or where they might not go on their own for logistical reasons, or where we can provide a fresh and special experience, sometimes with a guest expert who happens to be a friend too. Rome and its province, which have some of everything, is a no-brainer, an obvious choice. We know places in and around Rome where our people have never gone on their ten previous trips to the Eternal City.

It helps if a spot is relevant to our archaeo-culinary theme. Even when we choose a super-popular destination, like Pompeii, we give it a food-related spin—we emphasize markets, bakeries, kitchens, and dining rooms over temples and other public buildings. Food permeated so much of ancient life that we can even justify visits to tombs because ritual meals were eaten there on festivals of the dead.

Pompeii has at least one tomb made like a dining room. We once had a picnic on top of a tomb shaped like a bench. In the inscription, the deceased, a priestess, invited the passer-by to stop and rest. So we did. The connections are everywhere. Since you both have been touring Italy, how has the country changed you? Do I feel Italian? I speak the language fluently and often find an Italian phrase says what I want better than English, and vice versa. Most important for Elifant, I had to learn how to get along with people in Italy and do things the Italian way—as opposed to having it all come naturally, as to a native.

That experience makes me better able to know and explain what our people might find odd or might not even realize is different in Italy. Liz: I first came to Italy as an undergraduate studying in Rome, and the experience changed my life. Visiting ancient sites with an archaeologist and seeing Renaissance and baroque art with an expert art historian opened up new worlds for me and set me on my present career path.

Being in Rome for a full semester enabled me to see places like the Vatican multiple times, experiencing it in different light and in the rain and sun—boy, did I come to appreciate how special the light in Italy was for artists. I traveled around the country as much as I could on a very modest budget, but even then was able to eat local delicacies and get a sense of how seriously Italians take food. Back then the museums were often closed and the personnel surly, but I am happy to report that there is an entirely new attitude now; one of the biggest changes I see is the new professionalism in the museums and archaeological sites—longer opening hours, beautifully renovated displays, explanatory material in both English and Italian.

The Italians lead the world in museum curatorship and conservation. Italy has deepened my appreciation of beauty, both in art and in nature—not to get misty-eyed, but it has enlarged my soul. The author is pictured top and as an infant, with her mother, a Sicilian immigrant to South Africa.

Lucia Mann remains ahead of her time as an advocate against human trafficking and modern-day slavery. You have been involved in the cause of international slavery for some years. What is the latest regarding your work in this area? I have been an anti-slavery activist and advocate for over 50 years. I wrote these books to become the voice of stifled voices who have suffered heinous and brutal crimes against humanity … the hunger for freedom and justice was written on dark faces of enslaved human beings, including myself in this brutal era.

Divisare · Atlas of Architecture

I could release the dark deeds of my own upbringing under British colonial rule and later apartheid in South Africa. I was ethnically stereotyped as half-caste … colored … because of the union between my very dark-skinned Sicilian mother and light-skinned British father.

I suffered silently with them until I wrote about these factual atrocities. Racial profiling and the international slave trade has not pricked the conscience of the world because it still exists! On my website, www. It's not about slavery, but another form of persecution - one closer to home - domestic abuse. In the novel, it is the main character Maddie and the mental and physical torment she endures from her husband and her three daughters. What led you to write this book? In my humble opinion, any abuse is a form of slavery … bullying for self-gratification by those who pour out their frustration anger and blame the whole world, especially their parents, for their own failures in their lives.

In my opinion, these mentally-unstable individuals lack the human consideration for the rights of other souls and have complete disregard for others on any level. All your books have evolved from personal experience. And now comes "Addicted to Hate. Has writing this book help you cope with the torment of the past? It gave me the courage to show other hurting souls the depths of how unconscionable others can go. The chapters are 82 percent personal experience.

I am a victim of parental and disabled senior abuse who was embarrassed to tell anyone; even the people closest to me. However, it was necessary to fictionalize some events and characters for my own protection. Nevertheless, in writing this raw story, it finally gave me the right to push the burdening shame aside and reclaim my life … say NO MORE to the intimidating bullies that took so much from me.

In Maddie's case, the abuse is unending. It begins in South Africa inside an orphanage managed by nuns. As an adolescent girl, she undergoes genital mutilation. And then she suffers from government sanctioned bigotry and is exiled to Italy. From there, the abuse is domestic; at the hands of her husband and then children. It seems you are making the case that societal abuse leads intrinsically to domestic abuse. Is that true? Because I am living testimony at 73 years of age to have survived the odds of this deep-rooted behavior.

Sever … divorce … the hateful from your life. You deserve better. What advice can you give to women facing the same dire circumstances that Maddie faced? What can they do to escape the cycle of abuse? The right to say NO. Those who abuse others occupy an offensive, stone-cold category of their own and are not rationally-minded. Just trying to comprehend their unfathomable behavior is painful to victims and challenging. But only if you let them WIN … allow others that is, to take control of a life that is not theirs to dominate. Why do I let them take their rage out on me?

If you are a victim of abuse, it is time to reclaim your own life free of toxic hatred. I did it. So can you! They have in common the Italian heritage and are written by Italian Americans. Main character Madeline Clark, a. She works at military bases with security experts and secret agents. Yet, Maddie is no James Bond.

Far from it. She is a victim of terrible domestic abuse. Lucia Mann is no stranger to the plights of victims. Not just an author, she is also a political activist who was ahead of her time as a lead voice against international slavery many years ago. What follows is a story of abuse and survival. A teenager, she is given an escort to take her to Italy; only to be abandoned by the guardian in Milan. She then meets and falls in love with David, a British rock musician visiting Italy. Together, they resettle in London where Maddie must endure years of physical and emotional abuse by David.

She is all but divorced from him when she gives birth to their daughter, Joanne. What might seem a blessing turns out to be a curse. Away from David, Joanne grows to hate her mother. With another man, Maddie has a daughter Mara, who, we later learn, is psychotic. Maddie finds herself in an awful predicament. She is confronted by three daughters who plot and scheme against her. When her health begins to fail, the youngest, Mara, physically abuses her. The story turns on the inner strength of Maddie.

Although a victim of abuse, she is able to break free from the troubled past. We see the underlying currents of societal injustice giving way to family dysfunction and turmoil. What counts is strength and resilience. In that way, the story of Maddie is the story of us all. Lucia Mann gives us another deserving novel. Stephanie Longo knows Lackawanna County well.

Descrizione

She is a writer who specializes in the ethnic makeup of Eastern Pennsylvania. What was once a colony has become a state of people from different countries and of different creeds. Pennsylvania is now more Roman Catholic thanks to the influx of many Italians. In between these festivals are other observances, processions, and celebrations—all tied to keeping ethnic traditions alive and celebrating those who came from all over Italy to settle in the region. In the Race of the Saints, we see various teams of men dressed in different colors.

This is contained in a chapter focused on religion. Other chapters precede and follow with photographs and well-researched commentary to espouse different aspects of Italian life here such as work, family and culture. How and why Italians came to this region might be summed up in one word: Coal. However, the chief employer for Italian immigrants arriving in Lackawanna County was the anthracite coal mining industry.

We read about the Parise family and the stone monuments they have created over the years.

So many more stories of important Italian Americans are included. Ours is a great country because of our people. Available at Amazon. Here is a stunning collection of Italian recipes. The book might be edible if not for the fact that it is made of paper. Francesca runs a touring company called Lazy Italian Culinary Adventures. She is from Catanzaro, in the Calabria region of Italy, where she learned how to cook watching her parents in the kitchen.

In hindsight, I know I was very blessed. We were eating organic before it was cool to do so. Meals were healthy, seasonal, delicious and not only nourishing for the body but also the soul. Francesca knows her subject well and provides the ingredients, directions and commentaries to make cooking a special joy. All dishes stand out as glorious creations. The book makes a person hungry after browsing a few pages. Chapters follow on the regions of Italy and the basics of ingredients and kitchenware.

We then come to a showcase of extraordinary recipes. No doubt, Italians are blessed with great food. A great cookbook, indeed! Similar to the Book of Revelation is the ultimate battle between good and evil. The novel contains scenes where protagonists uncover hidden codes among great works of art. We read about secret agendas and schemes taking place inside the Vatican.

There are villas in the Italian countryside where meetings are held by those who seek to overturn the Church. And so on. Anthony is an architect who belongs to a secret group of Catholic defenders known as The Guardians. She and Anthony understand their destiny. They are to defend the Church from a takeover by the Antichrist.

Indeed, while the two are in Pesaro, a gathering of the P2 Masonic Lodge has convened somewhere else in Italy with top leaders in politics and industry. They have hatched a plan to assassinate the sitting pope and put in place their leader, the P2 Grand Master, Peter Romanus. They hope to rule the world with a dark religion that overturns the principles as set forth in Holy Scripture. What follows is a race against time to stop the conspiracy and restore the Catholic Church.

Deborah knows her material well and we are the better for it. It is a novel far more exciting because it is closer to the truth. The city was designed with a straight line grid to host a well-run public transportation system that took residents to a downtown of elegant department stores, fine restaurants and beautiful theaters.
