Documentarian Matteo Zengaro ’19 received an Arkansas Traveler Certificate for helping preserve Italian-American culture in the Delta through his short films, “Con Gusto!” and “I Sopravvissuti,” at the Arkansas State Capitol in Little Rock to kick off the second annual Arkansas Italian Food and Culture Festival, held in late April at the Clinton Presidential Center, where he world-premiered the former and replayed the latter.

“There are a lot of aspects to culture, so I like to share little pieces of that in my films,” said Zengaro, who majored in psychology at Delta State and who will pursue an M.A. in journalism at the University of Alabama. “I hope people come away with a greater appreciation and understanding of some unique stories or perspectives.”
