The Sicilian doctor who gave the American dream to Italian emigrants

Vincenzo Sellaro, moved to New York at the end of the 19th century, fought for the rights to the medical care of his fellow countrymen and women and founded the largest network of mutual aid overseas

Vincenzo Sellaro

“We left our native land to survive and many believe that history has reserved us some bad cards to play. As we were the last to arrive in America, we had to suffer prejudice and discrimination”
