Stefano Vaccara

I’m Sicilian, born in Mazara del Vallo and raised in Palermo. I studied history in Siena and went to graduate school at Boston University. While in school, I started to write for Il Giornale di Montanelli. I then got a full-time job for America Oggi and moved to New York City. My dream was to create a totally independent Italian paper in New York to be read all over the world: I finally founded La VOCE di New York. In 2018 I won the "Amerigo Award". I’m a journalist, but I’m also a teacher. I love both. I cover the United Nations, and I correspond from the UN for Radio Radicale in Rome. I teach Media Studies and also a course on the Mafia, not Hollywood style but the real one, at Lehman College, CUNY. I don't believe in "comfortable truth" and so I wrote the book "Carlos Marcello: The Man Behind the JFK Assassination" (Enigma Books 2013 e 2015). I love cooking for my family. My favorite dish: spaghetti con le vongole.
