West Pittston’s Dominick Cristofori D’Alessandro was delighted to play two classical piano pieces at the Embassy of Italy last week, and to have his musical talent recognized by The Italian Cultural Society of Washington, D.C. “It was a really great experience. The embassy was really impressive,” he said, adding he was thrilled to receive the society’s Luciana Montanari-Mendola Award in recognition of his talent as a pianist.

D’Alessandro, 19, is the son of Joseph D’Alessandro and Cynthia Stuccio D’Alessandro.
