I am happy to provide the directions, and am delighted that Carolina Cariola would be interested in coming to the show. Maybe the best way for me to offer the directions is to provide the ones that we have on our website, at this address:

I hope this helps, but if anything else is needed, please just let me know. And when she comes to the show, I hope she will come over and say hello; I would love to greet her in person.

Is this the same Lido Cantarutti, who you write about in 'La Nostra Costa'. If so Lido should plug your book. The story of his family on the wind blown coast is simply amazing. S/S

Excellent Lido ... this is great news coming from a fellow Furlan ! I have been in regular contact with your brother Reno. You certainly have gone beyond your humble roots and as Ivano Comelli has achieved in La Nostra Costa, you are doing it with the Italian Film Festival. "Sempre Avanti"... as per Ivano. It's too bad I live so far away, otherwise I would be there at the Festival for sure. I am certain there will be an excellent attendance.

Ciao e Mandi

Yes indeed, this is the same Lido Cantarutti, I write about in "La Nostra Costa". As the Canadian Furlan states he has "gone beyond his humble roots." Born at the Old Sisters Hospital in Santa Cruz, he spent the first year(s) of his life living in a "wind blown" shack, "su per la costa", a few miles North of Davenport. His parents were Guido and Evelina Cantarutti who immigrated to California from Friuli in North-east Italy, circa 1935. ivn0
