A visitor from Italy


Joe De Matteo, Alfonso Sfortza, Christian De Matteo

Best friends since we met in 3rd or 4th grade, I'm talking about John Sfortza, late of Miami.  John's picture isn't here.  I bring him up because on a trip to Italy a few years ago Christian met and became friends with Alfonzo.  He called me up and said, "i'm hanging out with Sforza." 

     "You met up with John Sforza in Italy," I said, "what are the odds of that." 

      "Pretty high, I would imagine," he tells me, "i just made friends with a great guy, whose last name is Sforza."

     He is a great guy and this is a picture of him and us on a Christmas Season visit to New York (2008).
