Angelo Sinisi of La Spezia, Italy lived for part of his life in the United States. He thrived here and fell in love with the country. Now, Angelo is showing his gratitude to America by saving the man who opened it up to the world. Angelo dismisses the controversy and is the counter to cancel culture. His mission is to stop those who wish to destroy the legacy of Christopher Columbus. He has convinced members of the Italian Parliament to show support for Columbus by officially condemning the destruction or removal of his statues in America. From his home in Italy, Angelo has enlisted over one thousand individuals with his page Hands Off Christopher Columbus to protect the symbol of Italian pride. I am one of those people and Angelo joined me today to discuss his journey to protect one of the world's greatest navigators. The podcast is below. There is also a video from Italian America Online, a group that is unifying all Italian-American organizations in the country. Angelo is working with that group to further the defense of Columbus.
