Steve Puleo honored with I Migliori award

Steve Puleo is a recipient of the 2007 I Migliori award. From the Latin meaning “the best in thought and actions,” the award honors Americans of Italian ancestry who have excelled in their chosen fields and have made a significant contribution to society. The award is presented annually by the Pirandello Lyceum, an organization dedicated to preserving and promoting Italian-American culture, made up of professionals from the academic and business communities in Massachusetts.

Recipients of the 2007 I Migliori award were honored at a reception and dinner. “I am honored and humbled to be chosen by the Pirandello Lyceum for this prestigious award,” Steve said. “It’s unusual for an author to be at a loss for words, but that was the case when I received the news of my selection. The I Miglioriaward will always remind me of the pride I have in my Italian heritage and inspire me in the future.”

Steve shares the honor with the following 2007 award recipients:

Kevin Caira, President, Grand Lodge Sons of Italy-Massachusetts
Larry Cancro, Senior Vice President, Fenway Affairs, the Boston Red Sox
Gino Cappelletti, Member of the New England Patriots Hall of Fame, Patriots broadcast commentator
Luigi V. Pasquale, Entrepreneur, Civic Leader, and Philanthropist
Joe Sciacca, Deputy Managing Editor, The Boston Herald
