As for the article, it says:
“My mom and dad were both born there (Italy), they came over at a young age. My parents were born in a small town, just a couple of hours from Torino.”
Torino is in the north of Italy in the Piemonte district, an area filled with rich culture and cuisine, the byproducts of over three millennia of human occupation. Northerners are said to be more influenced by European customs than their southern counterparts who are steeped in Italian traditions, but hockey is still a very foreign concept for all Italians.
Just one comment, 'cause that is not completely true: Italy is unfortunately a soccer biased country , but we also have a Hockey League since 1925... ok, our League sucks, no question about it...
