Larry Giaudrone and Rosemary Benedetto's road to the Italian Festival began when both of their grandparents emigrated to the United States. While Giaudrone's grandfather worked in the coal mines in the McAlester and Krebs areas, both sets of Benedetto's grandparents moved to north Texas, where they became cotton farmers.

Giaudrone and Benedetto met in Dallas when they both worked at Texas Instruments and have been together for 18 years. The couple has been named Re and Regina of this year's festival, with plans to officially crown them at 10:30 a.m. Saturday on the festival's outdoor stage near the main food tent.
