Ferragosto 2013 – Little Italy America : The Roaring 20’s!From New York to San Diego, America cast off the inhibitions of an earlier era and celebrated prosperity, movies, the automobile, and jazz. Then - January 16, 1920 – The 18th Amendment was signed into law and America went DRY!
It was Prohibition!
