Most Valuable Paisan!

The 2018-2019 season’s “Most Valuable Paisan award” was presented to the Marzullo family, who have done so much for the Italian-American community.

Brother and Sister team, Rafaelle Marzullo, and Marialena Marzullo, spearheaded the successful effort to keep Our Lady of Mt. Carmel church open by gathering petition signatures, writing op-eds, and reinstating the OLMC Feast!

Rafaelle, who was born in Aquilonia, Italy, was also instrumental in Montclair officially becoming a sister city to the town of Aquilonia, and stood in for the his hometown’s mayor at the official signing. You can learn more about Sister Cities at
