Dear Google folks,
Recently the Italian American Museum in Little Italy has been attacked in local and national media on several fronts. One is a rent dispute with an elderly tenant. The other primary reason is the eviction of Il Pallazzo restaurant. The owner claims fowl. I've found this article on internet which tells a truer story!
Check it Out!
Sal Anthony’s SPQR will be the sixth restaurant it owns on Mulberry Street.

Exhibition of paintings, drawings, photography at Kim Foster Gallery NYC.
Introduction
  Antonio Petracca is an artist, painter, photographer residing in Battery Park City, NYC,across the street from the WTC. 
   His new Exhibition: "10" an overview of his work from 2001 to the Present is now on view to October 15th at Kim Foster Gallery, 529 W20th St NYC. The earliest work in this exhibition is "Beacons" a painting begun just before 9/11 and finished February 2002. To the artist, "The Beacons " signifies honor, respect, rememberance and peace.
   The newest work depicts the rebuilding that is now visible at Ground Zero. This sense of finally moving forward is articulated in "WT Corner V". the New World Trade emerges, the shape of a V and the reflection of a crane dominates the work. It is best expressed as the tension between the representation of the site and the symbolism  revealed by the manner in which it is cropped.
    In "10" Petracca has several examples of his work concerning Identity, specifically the "Italian-American". This work investigates stereotyping and  misrepresentation of the "other" in the media and in everyday life.. Also on view are recent prints, loosely investigating the "metaphysical" aspect of the image.
   The artist still lives in Battery Park City. He is gratified to see that this part of the city that never sleeps is finally being awakened.
   Antonio Petracca has had recent solo exhibitions at the Italian American Museum in NYC, the Garibaldi Meucci Museum and MCC in Rochester NY. His primary representation is with the Kim Foster Gallery in NYC.
 He has been awarded several grants and special projects including an MTA mural commission thru the New York Foundation for the Arts. His work is in the collections of the Museum of the City of New York, New York Historical Society, George Eastman House Museum of Photography and film, and the National September11 Memorial and Museum.
