I Remember Nonna is a collection of several Vignettes of my childhood experiences with Nonna during my pre-teen years, when my sister and I went to live in the small hamlet in Pennsylvania called Old Boston in the fall of 1941. Moving from a small town to a farm environment made every aspect of our daily life, from that point, a learning encounter. The most trying part was the very beginning when we had neither understanding of Italian nor any clue at all what to expect in Old Boston. It was those stark beginnings with Nonna that have made such an impact on my thinking later in my life. For the first several months, almost every moment with Nonna was a learning experience. It was years later when I began to look back and saw the comical side in each of these incidents. When I related these events to other members of the family, they found them very funny and thought them so typical of Nonna. I knew then that these were moments that had to be remembered and passed on by the family.
