“Every aspect of the American economy has benefited from the contributions of immigrants.”
President John F. Kennedy said that and he was right. The stories we have chosen to publish in this fifth edition testify to this. They are stories of immigrants from Southern Italy, Mexico, Armenia, Spain and Iran, who have built their lives by contributing to the improvement of the host country and achieving success, especially in the artistic field. They share their cultural heritage and the memories held in their hearts. Memories and thoughts like those that you can find in the explanation of the song Munasterio ‘e Santa Chiara shared with us by a Neapolitan in Germany.
However you don’t necessarily have to be an immigrant to make your contribution to the host country. This is the case of Daniele De Cario, Neapolitan “bird of passage“. Although he is not an immigrant, he is making his contribution abroad as a musician and producer, and experiencing success in the Latin, Persian and Armenian music scene of Los Angeles.
The interviews with ‘A Riggina’ ‘e Napule (queen of Napoli) Teresa De Sio, and with Figlio delle Stelle (child of the stars) Alan Sorrenti, are our tribute to two artists, who are among the exponents of Neapolitan Power. They have sold millions of records over the course of their career and they still make sing, dance and dream those who listen to their songs.

We will tell you about his return and you will also read about the confirmation of the debut of the Diego Armando Maradona “itinerant” museum in Qatar on the World Cup 2022.
