The Town of Rye has been celebrating its 350th anniversary this year, with story, song and exhibits. Next up is a trio of storytellers — Lou Del Bianco, Jonathan Kruk and Doug Carey — breathing life into men from Rye’s past in a free, three-part series called “HisStory.”
First is Del Bianco, who presents his immigrant grandfather Luigi’s story Sunday, Sept. 26, from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Luigi, an Italian immigrant, moved to Port Chester in 1920. In 1933, he became the chief sculptor of Mount Rushmore, moving his family to South Dakota while he helped to blast and carve the faces of Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln from the rock.
Lou Del Bianco, who has played President Lincoln in one-man shows, now plays someone even closer to his heart.
The hour-long presentation will be at the Posillipo Center, 32 Garibaldi Place, Port Chester.
