The Palermo Chapter of the Order Sons and Daughters of Italy in America is founded

This morning, in the wonderful setting of the Chapel of the Scots in Piazza Barberini, the certificate of Charter was presented to the Palermo Chapter of the Order Sons and Daughters of Italy in America (OSDIA). The new chapter, the second in Italy, will be named after Dr. Vincenzo Sellaro, the Polizzi Generosa-born physician who emigrated to New York and who in 1905 founded the Sons and Daughters of Italy, the first core of the current OSDIA.

The ceremony, which took place on the occasion of the visit to Italy of National President Robert A. Bianchi and a delegation of OSDIA and Sons of Italy foundation leaders, saw the chairmanship of the founder and past president of the OSDIA Rome Chapter, Carmelo Cutuli, and the co-founder and current vice president, Paolo Quattrocchi.

Also present in Rome was a delegation from Palermo, led by Tiberio Mantia, a former member of the Rome Chapter, now President of this new chapter, who received the charter from the hands of President Bianchi in the presence of the organisation's American leadership and the Rome Chapter.

"It is a great honour and immense pleasure," said Palermo Chapter President Tiberio Mantia, "to be able to receive the charter today from the new OSDIA Chapter. Made up of 30 professionals and entrepreneurs, from various places in Sicily but also in Southern Italy, sharing with strong cultural and social interests in the United States. Our goal is to increasingly strengthen relations between our land and the Italian-American communities, focusing on the enhancement of traditions, culture, and Made in Italy products, with particular regard to Sicily and southern Italy. We will therefore collaborate in strong synergy with the Rome Chapter in order to best achieve the goals and objectives of our organisation, founded in New York in 1905 by Dr. Sellaro, proudly reaffirming his Palermo origin."

"The new Palermo chapter," emphasised the founder and past president of the OSDIA Rome Chapter, Carmelo Cutuli, "marks the return of the Sons of Italy to the land that gave birth to Dr. Vincenzo Sellaro, a key person for the cause of Italian Americans as much as he is unfortunately still not sufficiently celebrated and valued in our country. I would like to thank Tiberio Mantia for having made possible, with great commitment and enthusiasm, the establishment of this group, and I wish the Palermo Chapter well in its work, trusting that it can quickly position itself among the most active associative and service organisations in the Sicilian capital."
