Back at it again!! Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese have worked together in seven movies. This includes titles such as The Wolf of Wall Street, The Departed, and Shutter Island. This time, they are moving to TV. 

Fans are ecstatic after hearing that Leonardo Di Caprio and Martin Scorsese are creating an all-new tv show! Hulu’s senior vice president Craig Erwich, recently announced that The Devil in the White City is coming to Hulu.

“The Devil in the Wind City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America” was originally a historical non-fiction book by Erik Larson presented in a novelistic style. The book tells the story of an architect and a serial killer and the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition. It is a true story of Daniel H. Burnham and Henry H. Holmes.

Several years ago, Di Caprio was a part of a project called Devil in the White City. It was intended to be a movie where Di Caprio would star as the main character. Nevertheless, things have changed since then. Director Marin Scorsese has been wanting to adapt Erik Larsen’s best-selling nonfiction thriller since 2003 and began to do so in 2016.

It is not clear if Di Caprio will be acting or just produce the series. What we do know is that Di Caprio and Scorsese will definitely be a part of the series and it seems as if it will an intriguing and entertaining one!

Heritage Month is coming up in October!

Italian Heritage Month is celebrated every year to honor and recognize the centuries of achievements, successes, and valuable contributions of Italian immigrants and Italian Americans. It occurs in October to overlap with the federal holiday of Columbus Day, which is celebrated on the second Monday of each October. Italian Heritage Month was first celebrated in 1989 by a special proclamation of both Congress and President George H. W. Bush.

Over 5 million Italians immigrated to the United States between 1820 and 2000. Currently, there are over 26 million Americans of Italian descent residing in the United States. This makes Italian-Americans the fifth largest ethnic group in our nation. Each year Italians around the country take time to celebrate their heritage, history, and culture with festivals and parades. The largest parade occurs on Columbus Day in New York City with over 35,000 participants! 

Southern Colorado Sons of Italy Lodge 2738 celebrates the New Columbus Day Innauguration at the National Historical Registered Monument in Pueblo recognizing Coloradans whom have exhibited extraordinary efforts to ensure the peaceful celebraiton of Italian Heritage and Culture in our communities.

The 2019 celebration is right around the corner contact us to find out more and how you can participate directly in this celebration!

Q: So - what's up with Columbus Day legislative action? Are we going to see another Bill to change Columbus Day?

A: You can almost bet there is going to be another Bill to do something with Columbus Day at the 2020 legislative session in Colorado - so if you are interested in helping us with alternatuive legislative actions that protect ALL hertiage and cultual holiday on Colorado, watch this space for upcoming summit meting with the Colorado OSIA Lodges and Knights of Columbus. If you have friends in the Knights invite them to the upcomign summit meeting - more to come on the date - watch this space, or drop a note to


We are way past begging for help, if you want and expect your holiday to be protected then lend a hand, its your heritage and its your culture. Protect it like your parents and grandparents did for you,which means do something beside become iritated that "they" are trying to take away your holiday a-g-a-i-n.
