I'm referring to the couple's clear vision of their long-term mission, to traverse together six continents over a six-year span, in order to spread the traditions and values of their homeland, historical area of "Samnium" (today corres ponding to the P rovince of Benevento, Campania).

Allora Colombo non era nem- meno italiano, perchè l'Italia, sotto forma di regno affidato a Vittorio Emanuele II di Savoia, arriverà solo nel 1861. Nato nel 1451, marinaio della Repubblica di Genova, divenne suddito del Regno di Castiglia, dove poi morì nel 1506 e dove oggi c'è la casa in cui visse gli ultimi anni in solitudine, quando la corte gli aveva voltato le spalle. Se si perde il Columbus Day si perde storia italoamericana
