Gathering at the farm


This web-page makes available a rich variety of resources on a Southern Italian American family farm in Waterbury, Connecticut. Our family originates in Basilicata or Lucania in the province of Potenza in the town of Tolve. This page has primary materials on immigration history and immigrant life: film, oral history in original dialect and transcribed, audio, official documents, maps, photographs, recipes, commentary on daily life and much more. All of the documents and photographs are downloadable and printable. The Becce Farm was the last fully working farm in Waterbury, closing it’s functioning in 2012.
