Publisher's Description

Lino Borraccio was born in the Italian village of San Vittore del Lazio twenty days after Japan shocked the world with a devastating air raid on Pearl Harbor. Lino spent the first months of his life in a house nestled in the mountainous village, secure in the love of his parents and grandmother. World War II raged elsewhere, but not in Linos homeuntil the day his father was called into active duty in Mussolinis army.

In his biography, family friend Alicia Winget chronicles the fascinating life story of Borraccio as he embarked on a coming-of-age journey taking him from his Italian village through the difficulties and triumphs associated with World War II and post-war Italy. Eventually, he became an immigrant and moved to the United States; although he could barely understand English, he would later don an American military uniform in 1961. With incredible detail, photographs, and facts, Winget describes how Borraccio carved out a new life for himself as he became a licensed barber, an American citizen, and a husband who would eventually become a successful entrepreneur.

Out of the Rubble shares the inspiring life story of an Italian immigrant who stands as a model and memorial for perseverance, bravado, patience, and hard work.
