ITALICS finds out how an old-school pizzeria in Williamsburg, Brooklyn alters tradition to accommodate its changing clientele. Marina Benedetto of Yeah Dawg talks to us about her vegan, gluten-free hot dogs. Celebrating its 43rd year, the New York Conference of Italian American State Legislators honors distinguished members of the community – actor Paul Sorvino, rock bassist John Regan, “tailor to the stars” Nino Corvato, and a Lifetime Achievement Award to Matilda Raffa Cuomo. ITALICS goes to the state capital – and is joined by governor Andrew Cuomo.
