Marcella Serpa is an author from Asti, Italy who wrote a book about Connecticut Gov Ella Tambussi Grasso. Ella's family emigrated to the United States from Italy in 1903 and Ella was the first woman governor in the United States that didn't follow the footsteps of her husband. Ella grew up in Windsor Locks Connecticut just around the corner from my great grandparents who also came from the Piedmont Region of Italy. I worked on her first campaign as a college student for the office of the US House of Representatives from my district many years ago. In September of 2010, Marcella came with a group from Asti, Italy to Windsor Locks to deliver the English version of Marcella Serpa's book at a dedication of a chamber to Ella Grasso in the Windsor Locks Town Hall.
