Vallone Gets Back To His Roots At Local Concert
On August 8, Councilmember Peter F. Vallone Jr. celebrated his heritage during an Italian Night concert in Athens Square Park in Astoria. The performance was by Marty Hroncich & Co., who delighted the crowd with old Italian favorites from the Istria and Kvarner region. The concert was presented by the Fraternal Society of Canicatti and Fida. One of Vallone’s grandparents was born in the city of Canicatti, which is in Sicily. The Italian Night concerts are on Wednesday nights all summer long and are presented by the Federation of Italian-American Organizations of Queens. The councilmember has funded the Italian Night concert series each year he has been in office. Vallone celebrated Italian Night with members of the Board of Directors of the Fraternal Society of Canicatti and Fida and President of the Federation of Italian-American Organizations of Queens Joe DiPietro.
