Religious Festive Practices in Boston's North End

A comprehensive cultural and historical portrait of Italian American identities in Boston's North End.

In this lively and accessible book, Augosto Ferraiulo examines the many religious festivals in the Italian American community of Boston's North End. Using interviews, participant observation, and visual data, Ferraiuolo creates a vivid picture of how, over the course of a summer season, a number of religious festive practices are organized by multiple, overlapping, and to some extent, competing voluntary organizations.
