New York has many saints: the Madonna of East Harlem, Saint Cono of Williamsburg, San Gennaro of Mulberry Street and the Black Madonna of the East Village. Brought to the city by Italian immigrants, the saints stories begin in antiquity and contain the history and the traditions of the Middle Ages and beyond in Italy. Fading and forgotten, these traditions were once central to the lives of Italian immigrants.
