STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- The Archbishop of Naples, Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe, visited Casa Belvedere, The Italian Cultural Foundation, Grymes Hill, Thursday as part of a tour of the five boroughs.
One of the most notable leaders in Naples and of Italy's Campania region, Cardinal Sepe was in New York City this week for a series of events, "Dire Napoli" (Telling Naples) -- "Don't Close the Door on Hope," promoting Naples. He was accompanied to Casa Belvedere by Francesco Talo, counsel general of Italy, and Vincenzo Scotti, under-secretary for foreign affairs of Italy.
Ms. Savino accompanied the cardinal on a tour of Ellis Island that morning and noted that it was the gateway for Italian immigrants nearly 100 years ago.
