Growing Up Italian
Don't talk too loud!

by aj Lombardi

The funniest Italian American comedy story you will ever read is here! Sunday dinner with the Luchanni Family is the place where everyone gets a double serving of great food, gossip, family love, arguing about who gave the least at a wedding, and the person who did not show up at a family funeral… Please come and join us for this funny new special episode in chapter one!

The old neighborhood is where it all happens.

The Luchanni's have lived on Nello Street since the arrival of Grandpa Vinny and Grandma Rose  to America. Down the block from Saint Michael’s church on Nello Street sits the three-family home of the Luchanni family. Across the street is Vindo's Italian bakery. From two blocks away, you can smell the heavenly aroma of fresh bread, pizza, and pastries filling the air.

The first floor is occupied by Uncle Carlo, his wife Aunt Edda, and their teenage son Nunzio. The second floor is where Grandpa Vinny and Grandma Rose live. Aunt Gloria, Uncle Carmine, their daughter Gina and wisecracking young son Butch live on the third floor. Aside from family members, there always seems to be an assortment of friends and strays who stop in from time to time. Some of these include Gina's boyfriend Joey, Butches friends Johnny Grande, Larry, and Tommy, And, of course, we cannot forget Father Tucci and Sister Henrietta. From time to time, Dolores Carpono will stop by with her daughter Carmella who has a mustache.
