    Agita - Maryann Maisano

    Agita - Maryann Maisano

    Maryann Maisano gives us a glimpse into growing up Italian in Fort Lee NJ, music career, dad's taxi business and her one woman show "Agita"

    A true Italian-American tale centered around family, food, and of course, drama, Agita is the coming-of-age story of Maryann Maisano, a first-generation Italian American. Set in the shadows of the George Washington Bridge, Agita recounts the joys and challenges of life in 1960s suburban America being raised by traditional Italian immigrants in a rather dysfunctional household.

    Maisano takes the audience on a poignant and hilarious journey as she recounts tales of her rebellious childhood pushing against her family's expectations that eventually lead her to embrace the unspeakable... THERAPY! Ultimately, Maisano makes two of the hardest decisions of her adult life, "coming out" to her very Italian family and trading in a six-figure job take a shot at being a full-time entertainer!

    Agita is a story of courage and hope, and how risking it all to fulfill our dreams is the true path to happiness!

    Researching Campania and Lazio

    Researching Campania and Lazio

    Ariana Franco discusses starting her research in 2020 and turning her passion into a genealogy business.

    I began researching my family history in late 2020 as a way to investigate where I came from, who I came from, and to connect with family. The more I found the more inspired I have been to tell the stories. My personal family stories have transported me through 20th century New England back to 19th century Italy. 
    My genealogical research balances the scale of imagination and information found in documents.
    As an artist, I have always been fascinated by people’s interactions and experiences in spaces. Themes of my personal art returns to artifacts that represent personality thus identifying a relationship between object and person. Those who have passed into the spirit world have become ethereal; symbolized as moths inside kaleidoscopes.
