Display is one of Midwests largest collections
From press release
The Ethnic Heritage Museums Italian Gallery has on display one of the largest Sicily-imported collections of St. Joseph breads in the Midwest.
Roseanne Scalise Sheridans family trip last summer to Sicily to collect information about her familys roots also resulted in the museums acquisition of one of the most traditional, folkloric collection of St. Joseph altar pieces.
The women of Salemi, Sicily, were so impressed that American Italians were so interested in their Old World traditions of breads that they gave her many of the pieces to share with the public.
This unique display will be at the Ethnic Heritage Museum, 1129 S. Main St., for two months only. Stop by any Sunday in April from 2-4 p.m. to view a collection of Old World, Sicilian, beautifully designed altar breads.
