Dino Mention In The WaPo!
As Columbus Day 2015 approached, Vincent J. Cannato, associate professor of history at the University of Massachusetts Boston and the author of American Passage: The History of Ellis Island, paid homage to our Dino in his opinion piece "How America became Italian":

This paragraph appeared in the Sunday edition of the Washington Post of the WaPo — the most widely read edition of the newspaper all week long — so we Dino fans know that many readers took note of our Dino and his role in changing America for the better!
