Nutley UNICO hosts special ‘Italian Jeopardy!’

In keeping with Nutley UNICOs goal to uphold time-honored traditions and celebrate Italian heritage, the organizations March meeting featured Italian Jeopardy, compliments of member Dan Marucci, who uses information about places in Italy, food, celebrities of Italian heritage, etc., to create the Jeopardy categories and answers. The bonus, organizers say, is sharing what one already knows and learning new tidbits about Italian heritage. Nearly 80 members and guests attended the meeting at Mamma Vittorias in Nutley.  Nutleys UNICO chapter was formed in 1959. Here, Marucci and his assistant Jerry DelTufo are seen operating the Italian Jeopardy board.
