Over his long career as a writer, filmmaker, academic, and award-winning documentarian, Eduardo Montes-Bradley has always been inspired by his love of learning. But these days, it’s his Italian heritage that drives his tireless quest to uncover the six Italian American brothers whose skill as master carvers fundamentally reshaped the face of the modern American city.
Join us as we visit the Columbus Citizens Foundation to sit down with this fascinating Argentine-American storyteller to learn more about his passion project documentary examining this incredible Italian American family and the incomparable body of work that flowed out of their studio in the Bronx.
From the Lincoln Memorial to the New York Stock Exchange, from Brooklyn to San Diego, their impact on public art in America can never be matched… yet their contribution is almost completely overlooked today, and Eduardo has set out to discover why!
We’ll discuss artificial intelligence and its role in history and discovery, examine the ever-evolving role of documentaries and podcasts in the sphere of education, and ask why it is that we Italians seem destined to create art no matter where we go!
