Did you Know: Pietro Cesare Alberti



Did you know? 
Pietro Cesare Alberti (1608–1655), a Venetian immigrant, was the first Italian American settler in what is now New York State. A small stone in New York City's Battery Park, near the bronze statue of Giovanni da Verrazzano, commemorates Pietro Alberti's arrival and declares June 2 to be "Alberti Day".
From Venice With Love,

  1. Hello. I just found a painting of him by googling. I'm descended from him and want to go to Venice and see the plaque there.
