Capturing the Rich Culture of Italy at

    In the Italian language, Casa Belvedere means “house with a beautiful view” and nowhere is this more evident than at 79 Howard Avenue in Staten Island. With its lavish grounds and rich history, Casa Belvedere, a New York City historic landmark, sits on nearly three acres atop Grymes Hill and boasts a spectacular view of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and the New York City Harbor.
    In November 2008, Staten Island residents Gina Biancardi-Rammairone and Luciano Rammairone purchased the mansion with dreams of restoring it to its original splendor while converting it to an arts and cultural center for the community to enjoy.
    Through innovative programs, exhibits, and events, the Foundation seeks to preserve and promote an appreciation of Italian language, arts, literature, history, fashion, cuisine, and commerce while also celebrating the Italian heritage and the contributions of Italians and Italian-Americans to the fabric of the United States.
    Award-winning Producer, writer and director Tony De Nonno gave a presentation on CELEBRATING the MANTEO  MARIONETTE TRADITION and took his audience on an enlightened journey into Papa Manteo Sicilian Marionette Theater.  Audience members will see how the marionette, resplendent in its suit of armor, struts, walks, talks and engages in battle-ready combat stances with chivalrous aplomb.  Several
'children of all ages' in attendance will be given the opportunity to experience manipulating the puppet.  It was evident that Tony De Nonno not only is a master at puppetry but has such tender caring love and respect for the Craft that he wants to share.

Bride and Groom Dance

More Pictures

This was a very multi cultural wedding. The brides family is arabic and her dad hired dancers to enter after the bride and groom danced into the reception hall. I've never been to a wedding where there was so much culture. It was awesome. They played Arabic music throughout the night and everybody was on the dance floor trying to learn the steps. I must say it was a lot of fun to try and learn. All the family members were teaching all of us the moves.

Another batch of Wedding Photos
