Most, however, did not go back.Several generations have passed, and the desire to re-establish a connection between the two cities resulted in the establishment of a Sister City affiliation between Olevano and Wilmington.This photographic essay marked the first step toward creating this bond. Through his book, Giuseppe DIncà has brought into focus these two worlds, united through common origins and traditions. His images of Wilmington, skillfully observed, capture the sights of our city as it goes about its daily business- and a section dedicated to St.

Anthonys Italian Festival is photographed in lively and colorful detail.Narrative passages include The First City of the First State by Constance J. Cooper, describing the growth of Wilmington from its settlement by the Swedes to its present day status as a growing metropolis surrounded by a large suburban area.

Phil Maggitti traces the history of Wilmingtons Italian colony and its contribution to the city in A View from the Hill- and Marjorie McNinch visits Wilmingtons most popular summer event in St. Anthonys Italian Festival. In A New World City with Old World Roots, the history, art, and architecture of Olevano, Wilmingtons Sister City, are explored.Through his images, Giuseppe DIncà has brought Wilmington to the people of Olevano- and, in so doing, has created a work of historical and artistic reference for future generations of these sister cities.
