Fall 2018 Trip Planning Started !!

I'm looking forward to returning to work in Italy in November 2018 (see

Amazing Year!

The fundraising continues for a series of documentaries about Prisoners of War in America. Our non-profit partner is the Italian Center of the West, see for more details.

I've found a new publisher (Arcadia) for my books on American Prisoner of War Camps. We've shifted it from one big book to lots of smaller books with many more photos. The first book in the series will probably drop in March: American POW Camps in Idaho and Utah. The next will release a month or two later: American POW Camps in Arizona and Nevada with the third a couple months later: American POW Camps in Southern California. We're working our way across the country with details and photos about each camp. I'm very excited about this series and that we're able to match the first releases so closely with the release of Red Gold.

Yes, Red Gold, a major motion picture about Italian POWs in America, is currently in production. We're VERY excited that this project, in the works for 15 years now, is finally becoming a reality. See for more details. Also

In November, I'm planning to research in Alia, Santa Venerina and Messina in Sicilia, Serrastretta in Catanzaro province, Roma, the Vatican Secret Archives, Pescosolido, Lucca, Firenze (Florence), Varese Ligure in La Spezia province, Chiusa di Pesio in Cuneo province, Verona, Gargnano in Brescia province, and Milano. I'm looking forward to meeting with both American and European friends (old and new), as well as returning to favorite places and visiting towns I haven't seen before!

My book on CD titled
Sicily, Part 1 and Part 2 is now available on 2 CDs or .rar files. With a file for each town (plus many other files), it relates the history of Sicily as reflected in the photos, records and festivals of its towns. It contains over 2500 text and photo files and can be ordered at CD order.

My latest book is titled
Prisoner of War Camps Across America and is available in paperback and Kindle formats on Amazon and in Nook format on Barnes and Noble.
