The Luke Fontana Collection Permanent Exhibit @ The American Italian Cultural Center- Horses in the Dolomiti

November 27, 2018

Happy to announce, my continued successful collaboration with the American Italian Cultural Center in New Orleans, where the LUKE FONTANA COLLECTION has a permeant exhibit.  Please stop in to view & if inspired to- purchase my photographs celebrating the gloriously majestic & beautiful Dolomiti Mountains; as well as enjoy the incredible AICC.   

 

My “Horses in Dolomiti” photograph was taken in Lago Antorno. 

 

From there I took a truck drive to Monte Piana with an Italian man to “Museo storico all'aperto della 1 Guerra Mondiale…the Grande Guerra Museum = a WW1 museum.

 

I'm playing my blues harmonica song "MY BABE".

 

He asks where is my family from and I tell him Sicily, but when I tell him my name is Fontana, he said no way am I from Sicily!

The Fontanas come from POINTE NELLE ALPI  a village outside of Bellundo.

 

The earthquake, I speak with him about concerning my father's father=Paolo(Paul) Fontana village being destroyed on June 28,1873;  did not occur in Sicily, but outside of Bellundo, Italy.

 

For the 1st time in my life, for whatever it's worth,

Luke Fontana is not 100% Sicilian. 

 

And my sister, Lucia was so happy when I inform her of this

Fontana Family fact.

 

Viva la vita!

Luca
