Gianna Francesca Tagliarini and Joseph Caravella are proud Americans. How could we not be, as we are in a country of freedom and opportunity? Yet we are also proud of our heritage and are especially mindful of our ancestors; immigrants to the United States of America who worked very hard yet lived with very little. Our families, as many others, endured many challenges, hardships, and pains that are sometimes taken for granted by the generation today. Throughout Ybor City, an area of Tampa known for its immigrant history, the names and legacies of the Tagliarini and Caravella ancestors grace the pavement, markers, and statues. In Tampa, our own Italian and Spanish heritage means that we are never far from being a "second cousin” or just two degrees of separation from many others. We are not special though, nor are we unique - but we are humbled - as there are many other family names and legacies inscribed alongside ours. This is not just our story; it is an American story common for so many.
