with Dominick Ianno
Politics and Pasta
A champion of inner city revitalization, Buddy Cianci served as the Mayor of Providence for an unprecedented 21 years, turning it into the Renaissance City through sustainable urban renewal. While his tenure was marred with controversy, including a forced resignation and conviction, Buddy is still in the public eye through his daily radio and TV shows, and might even be considering yet another run for mayor. Ford Hall Forum President Dominick Ianno draws outrageous anecdotes from the always-entertaining Buddy Cianci.
Buddy Cianci will be signing and selling copies of his memoir, “Politics and Pasta: How I Prosecuted Mobsters, Rebuilt a Dying City, Dined with Sinatra, Spent Five Years in a Federally-Funded Gated Community, and Lived to Tell the Tale,” at the end of the event.
Thursday, May 19, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
C. Walsh Theatre, Suffolk University
