LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION mourning the death of Angelo Zuccolo, actor,
stage director, published poet, professor emeritus of theatre and
devoted member of his community

WHEREAS, It is the custom of this Legislative Body to pay tribute to
citizens of the State of New York whose lifework and civic endeavor
served to enhance the quality of life in their communities and the great
State of New York; and
WHEREAS, Angelo Zuccolo of Dickinson, New York, died on May 15, 2013,
at the age of 72; and
WHEREAS, Angelo Zuccolo was born into a family of actors, poets,
sculptors, painters and singers; within this context, the enchantment
and romance of a world filled with sensory, sensuous and sensual poetry
were present from sunrise to sunset; and
WHEREAS, His insights into the flavor and spice of the human heart
simmered with the delicate aroma of love both found and often lost; he
performed in stage, film and television in the United States and abroad,
including the title role in James Joyce's "Finnegan's Wake" at the pres-
tigious Holland Festival in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and Ligurio in
Machiavelli's "The Mandrake" at Norway's Fana Festival; and
WHEREAS, He directed over 300 stage and media productions, served as
artistic director of the renowned Leonard Melfi Repertory Theatre, and
was the author of myriad playscripts and teleplays; and
WHEREAS, His collection of Italian-American short stories, REMEMBER!
WE COME FROM GOOD STOCK, was received with acclaim both in the United
States and in Italy, and his trilogy of romantic poetry received
national applause for its insights into the caring human heart; and
WHEREAS, A quintessential thespian, Angelo Zuccolo spent 30 years as
the Theater Director at Broome Community College; there is a scholarship
in his name for excellence in theater; and
WHEREAS, Predeceased by his parents, Edith and Angelo Zuccolo, Angelo
Zuccolo is survived by daughters, Angelique and Marielle; and
WHEREAS, Armed with a humanistic spirit and imbued with a sense of
compassion, Angelo Zuccolo leaves behind a legacy which will long endure
the passage of time and will remain as a comforting memory to all he
befriended; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
mourn the death of Angelo Zuccolo, actor, stage director, published
poet, professor emeritus of theatre and devoted member of his community;
and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the family of Angelo Zuccolo.
