In The Shadow of The Mountain

Parents Choice award winning storyteller Lou Del Bianco portrays his grandfather Luigi Del Bianco and tells the story of his unique contribution as chief carver on our nation’s greatest memorial. Lou uses authentic photos, maps and timlines to bring Luigi’s story to life! This is a unique program about history, ancestry, perseverance and advocating for human rights. Students will also learn that history doesn’t always tell you the whole story and that it’s up to us to do the work and find out the truth about what really happened. Connects perfectly to Social Studies curriculum and primary source research.


Appropriate for grades k-12. Study Guides available.
