THE PIONEER

THIS WORK HAS BEEN CREATED TO HONOUR AND PRAISE ALL THE PIONEERS OF THIS COUNTRY AND IN PARTICULAR THE EMIGRANT ITALIAN FAMILIES, WHOSE SURVIVORS, AFTER A MISFORTUNATE AND TRAGIC ODYSSEY, HAD THE STRENGTH AND COURAGE TO FORGE THE FOUNDATIONS OF A NEW LIFE IN THIS AREA WHICH THEY NAMED NEW ITALY.
CARLO JACUZZI
