This jULY 4TH impromptu show is to celebrate the real meaning of independence, James Gandolfini's memory, and his importance as the fiercely independent Ancient King of Sicily during the Rise of the Ancient Roman Empire.
Through time Sicily has been at the heart of great civilizations, at other times it has been nothing more than a colonial backwater. Its fortunes have often waxed and waned depending on events out of its control, in earlier times a magnet for immigrants in later times a land of emigrants. Sicily is part of the Mezzogiorno (southern Italy, including Sicily and often Sardinia), a region historically characterized by a predominantly agrarian economy, quasi-feudal land tenure, sharp class differences, and the vendettas and criminal activities of the Camorra in Naples and the Mafia in Sicily.

Personally, Gandolfini provided a reality check for me about what life really was like in Ancient Rome. As in his numerous screen portrayals, Gaius Veres was a very likable guy who did a lot of bad things. And if you are unfamiliar, look up pictures of Sicily online, for it is a stupendously beautiful island, which had the honor of being designated the "Bread Basket" of Ancient Rome.
Sicily’s cultural and historic relevance have not been explored seriously in film, yet Sicily is “the most invaded place on the planet,” and the island’s story rivals both Greece and Egypt as a primary source for Western ideas.
“Unfortunately, organized crime is the only part of Sicily’s culture most of us know anything about, thanks to ‘The Godfather’ movies and so many others,” said Spano, whose paternal grandparents were first-gene
