The Ustica Connection

Newsletter of the Congregazione di San Bartolomeo Apostolo

The Ustica Connection is all about connections - those ties that bind our rich local heritage with Ustica, the homeland of our ancestors.  Through the Society newsletter, we aim to rediscover and communicate the contributions of the Usticese-American community to American culture and history.   The Society newsletter is published and e-mailed to members preceding events.
