Are you a fan of author Laura Morelli? She has a long history of writing for National Geographic Traveler and has written a guidebook series.
Sheâ€™s also published a history based work of fiction and has had her art history lessons turned into videos. Well, if you are an admirer, better clear your calendar for the second full week of November. Thatâ€™s when sheâ€™ll put away her wanderlust long enough to spend the night on Sea Island, Georgia, real estate.
Her visit is all part of the ongoing series of events on offer at the islandâ€™s renowned resort. Her contribution to the schedule is a combination dinner and book signing shindig thatâ€™s slated to take place in the Georgian Room the evening of Sunday, November 9th. If you are interested in attending, we can help you obtain tickets and a place to stay. The overt theme of the evening will be Italy and the joys to be found when traveling through Venice, which made us think briefly about Italian immigration.
It started impacting our area in the 1800s when Italians began pouring into the ports of nearby Brunswick, Darien, Savannah and points beyond. At the time, many were natives of regions like Sardinia, Lombardy, Tuscany, Piedmont and Sicily. They were all said to have been looking for a better way of life.
Today, people continue to come from Italy, and all over the world, to enjoy Sea Island real estate. As for the ports and their staff, nowadays theyâ€™re more focused on transporting goods as opposed to immigrants.
The Italiansâ€™ impact on our region didnâ€™t end in the 1800s either. Thatâ€™s why youâ€™ll find places like Sunset SlushÂ®, Salâ€™s Neighborhood Pizzeria, Nazzaroâ€™s Ristorante Italiano and Tramici Neighborhood Italian serving up great food on nearby St. Simons Island.
