The Boston Italians is my story, too

There’s another reason The Boston Italians means so much to me: it is my story, too. Three of my four grandparents were immigrants, members of that first “Greatest Generation.” Thus, I have woven the Puleo story through the course of The Boston Italians as illustrative of the overall fabric of the Boston Italian experience, a rich and colorful tapestry of enduring strength and value, one held together for one-hundred-and-thirty years by the legacies of struggle, perseverance, hard work, and the bond of family.
