Meet Tonino, a farmer from rural Italy. He sold his share of the farm to pay for his passage to America and plans to go to Chicago. Once there, he plans to get work and save enough money to bring his fiancée, Virginia here, so they can start their new life together.
His real name is Andrea Limonta, a foreign student from Milan, Italy working for us through Septmeber. He is a welcomed addition to our Ellis Café and joins our other living history, the Inspector. He will be dining with the visitors and sharing his stories and answering the visitors' questions while staying completely in character
Please look out for him when you visit the Ellis Café. 🗽👀 #EvelynHill #ellisisland #nps101 #statueofliberty
