FROM ITALY TO BAROQUE PARK
The story of a family and "Poesia and Chanson""
By John Padovano
After the Padovano and Macino families emigrate from Italy to settle in The Ironbound Section of Newark, New Jersey, thus begins the development of John Padovano's music that he calls "Poesia and Chanson". Padovano, later in his story, returns to The Ironbound to perform a concert at his old neighborhood. His story also explains his desire to visit a small village in Italy called Mandaradoni.
The influence from Padovano's parents, his early childhood neighborhood, and a special year in his life is explained in his tale.
Padovano has released 18 albums, and he performs aka The Ironbound Crooner and aka John "Giovanni" Padovano.
