Cultural Site

Overview

No votes yet

Opened in the 1900s, this cafe was originally known as Caffe Ronca and it still serves authentic Italian pastries and Coffee. In the 1920s the caffe was a favorite gathering spot for Italian actors. These actors were drawn to Caffe Ronca because of a wildly popular actor, Eduard Migliaccio, would drink his morning coffee there.

Eduard Migliaccio specialized in comedy and played the much loved character Farfariello, a stereotypical Neapolitan immigrant who spoke both English and Italian atrociously. By evoking pleasure, it transmuted individual pain into community pleasure.
