From the moment I met Celestina Peruggia in 2008, I felt as if she was the little Italian grandmother I always wanted. She was kind and sweet and so willingly shared with us everything she knew about her father so that we could tell his story in our film.
She is the heart and soul of our film. Sadly, she passed away in March 10, 2011 at the age of 84.
