Watertown Sons-of-Italy

Christopher Columbus, navigator and explorer, 1492 vs today. On Dec 12, during its scheduled monthly meeting, the Watertown Sons and Daughters of Italy hosted a talk by Matteo Cassini, professor at Suffolk University and UMass Boston. There is little doubt as to Columbus’ significance stemming from his voyage which led to discovery of the new world, the America’s, as well as the significance to immigrants in general, to Italian Americans, to the US and to the world. There are many examples of his namesake, including our nation’s capital, The District of Columbia. In more recent times though there has been controversy. The talk was enlightening as professor Cassini highlighted Columbus’ timeline which also generated some spirited discussion with attendees. At the conclusion, the food and refreshments made the whole evening worthwhile. Many thanks to Professor Cassini for taking the time for the presentation, to sister Maria Pia for arranging the talk, and to the members who helped serve the food. ... See MoreSee Less
