About ROMANO DELLA SANTINA from whose estate this book was acquired (excerpted from his online Obituary): ******ROMANO DELLA SANTINA, b. 1929 in Lucca Italy, d. 2015 in Marin California. In 1948 Romano immigrated with his wife to America where he joined his uncle, Adolph Della Santina, at Original Joe's II in San Francisco. In 1954, Adolph Santina opened MARIN JOE'S and Romano joined him. Soon he became a partner at Marin Joe's and 61 years later the restaurant is still family owned and thriving. Along with his wife, he leaves behind four children; Paul, Joanne, Tina and Ralph, their spouses, seven grandchildren and four great grandchildren; and also leaving two brothers, family and friends in Lucca, Italy. Romano was a proud Italian American and his involvement in the Italian American community ran deep. In 1984 he was bestowed the highest honor given to an Italian civilian, Cavaliere Dell'Ordine della Republica Italiana.****** INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: These two books in slipcase are large and heavy requiring substantial additional shipping charges.
