    Default Dom Volante

    Yesterday a plaque was unveiled by the lord mayor (Steve Rotheram) and Debz (Author of the Fastest selling Liverpool Local History book and my partner) in memory of the legendary Liverpool Boxer Dom Volante.
    Here's a piece from today's Liverpool Echo...

    Cheers Chris. I forgot to mention that Paolo Grassi is the guy who made the plaque and the Hillsborough Memorial Eternal Flame.

    Great!

    There is quite a substantial Italian community here in Baltimore. Older Italian immigrants play bocci (a counterpart to English lawn bowling) in the Little Italy neighborhood of East Baltimore. The Little Italy here features a number of popular restaurants. Two mayors of Baltimore in the 1950's and 1960s were Italians named D'Alesandro, father and son, and Nancy Pelosi, the current speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, a congresswoman from San Francisco, California, is a D'Alesandro from Baltimore.

    All the best

    Well done to Debz. I've got the book of course but noticed it in the Anglican Cathedral bookshop on Sunday.

    Great to see local authors doing well. Little Italy was part of Liverpool's rich tapestry and should continue to be celebrated.

    Wait till you see the improved up-to-date "gone real fancy" one. And there's another book she's doing with two famous L/Pool authors. Just wish she'd write something along the lines of a Harry Potter book and get us rich rich rich
