We offer walking tours about the history of Paterson and Lyon for 2021–23. Since 1883 they have been Sister Silk Cities including the remarkable heritage of the City Hall in Paterson, which remains a homage to Lyon from the support of French industrialists, as well as St. John’s Cathedral, as in Paterson and Lyon.
Most recently we secured a Congressional Proclamation for the Orchestre de Lyon when they appeared at NJPAC in 2017 from Bill Pascrell. Earlier I was a guest of French Cultural Services in Lyon for cultural exchange.
A few years ago, and now with recent correspondence, I notified the Zimmerli Museum about the importance of their Grand Guignol puppets in their collection. They are now aware of this Lyon Paterson connection for Century 21. This would be a fabulous program and cultural exchange.
My work has also included an op-ed in The Herald-News, and an editorial in The Bergen Record and our Arts Festivals in Paterson. Recent events included The French Connection for Fair Lawn Library, and PATERSON at Oradell Library. In addition, to other programs on Lyon and Paterson at Paterson Museum; Morris Museum; and Lambert Castle and elsewhere.

ArtsPRunlimited, Inc My salute to Atlantic Crossing on PBS. Just by happenstance I started watching Atlantic Crossing. It was a moving, dramatic series about Norway before and during WW II. An important insight into little known Nordic history with a stirring score and multi-lingual cast. Kyle MacLachlan was FDR, and…
Trudeau has gotten this right in 2021 via The Washington Post. Let us not forget La Storia Segretto (Secret History) of the Italians interned here in the United States during WWII. The Italians still sit by unknowing of their own history in Century 21. Why ? Trudeau apologizes for the WWII internment of Italian Canadians By Amanda Coletta ● Read more » Some background: “On February 24, 1994, the exhibit Una Storia Segreta: When Italian Americans Were ‘Enemy Aliens’ opened at the Museo Italo Americano in San Francisco. The opening on February 24 memorialized the date in 1942 when enemy aliens of Italian descent living in recently-designated “prohibited zones” on the West Coast had to leave their homes and businesses in those zones and move elsewhere”.
