Snap Shot No. 20- Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man


As Silvio reconnects with old friends in his hometown, here is a glimpse of him as the 21-year-old who had just left Nice the year before. He was working for his uncle, jeweler Tony Mazzarese, in Kansas City, MO. At this point he was attending an ESL class at the local university that was geared toward Spanish speakers; hence, he had to learn both Spanish and English concurrently!
