Saint Prospero

Saint Prospero:
patron saint of Faeto
The photo of the statue on the far left, was taken in Faeto's church. The original statue (right), can be found in Saint Rocco's church in Cleveland, Ohio.

Interesting FYI: Carl D'Aiuto, the uncle of Linda Santosuosso, made the reeds that are in the Cleveland statue's hand. He made them out of some sort of sheet metal. The statue was mostly paid for by the Gianvito family.

The plaque on the Cleveland statue says:
Giovanni Paoletta; Carmina Gianvito; Sett. 13 - 1925
