Caffé Italia Radio – The Italian coffee where books, aphorisms are sipped and converse between current and apparent nonsense, with a quality musical column through dear notes and memories.
Caf San Marco is a historic historical cafe in Trieste, Italy, founded in 1914 that gained a reputation as a presentation to intellectuals and writers, including Italo Sovevo, James Joyce and Umberto Saba, and continues to this day with Claudio Magris.
It is located through Batisti 18. A meeting place for Trieste’s concerns, the caf was destroyed by Austro-Hungarian armies during World War I but reopened when hostilities ended.
Parts of the fresco are attributed to Vito Timmel. The Italians campaigned for the preservation of the historic Cafe in 2013 and it has now been restored by attaching a bookstore.
In 1951, Giovanni Giotta (aka “Papa Gianni,” 1920-2016) and his family immigrated to the United States from Italy.
He was born and raised in the small fishing town of Rovigano de Estria in Croatia (a part of Italy before World War II) and lived in Monfalcon, Italy from 1947 to 1951.
When Giotta first came to San Francisco, he was in financial trouble. He went to the priests of St. Peter and Paul Church for help.
As he explained, “We had nothing, no place to stay, no bread to eat. Dad brought us a family and found me a job.” He worked as a window-washer and sang while working.
