Pino Cicala would have been 93 years old today, June 12, 2020. His passing three years ago left a void in our Italian American community. To keep his legacy alive, we announce today that Casa Italiana Sociocultural Center, Inc. (CISC), will name its archives and virtual collection in memory of Pino Cicala.

The Pino Cicala Archives and Virtual Collection will consist of a core of hundreds of Pino’s files, donated by his son Luigi and his brother Melo Cicala. The files chronicle and record the history of Italian American organizations and their major events in the Washington area for nearly 60 years. Plans are also underway to digitize a large collection of community photographs from the Holy Rosary Church collection for the new archive.
