On Saturday September 30th, The Enrico Caruso Gallery opened at Casa Belvedere in Staten Island. NY. Following a wonderful buffet lunch, there were several speeches and a video remembrance of Commendatore Aldo Mancusi who amassed the collection over many years and had the items in this new space plus a whole lot more on display at his Enrico Caruso Museum in Brooklyn. A ribbon cutting ceremony followed and then attendees took a tour of the new space. Special kudos to Lou Barrella for his tireless devotion to the project and Comm. Mancusi's memory and Casa Belvedere for their support and providing the space for the exhibits.
