My grandfather emigrated from Villamagna - a town which is on the next hilltop over from Bucchianico - and worked as a tailor in Philadelphia. He became John Wanamaker's master (and personal) tailor. Despite the fact that I'm descended from about 4 generations of tailors in Italy, I will put out my eye if I so much as pick up a sewing needle, so I regret that I didn't learn more about my grandfather's artisan craft while he was alive. This show fills in some of the blanks. Thanks for posting.
