Gaetano Federici: The Sculptor Laureate of Paterson

BEST DOCUMENTARY AWARD: RIDGEWOOD FILM FESTIVAL

BEST DOCUMENTARY AWARD: PATERSON FALLS FILM FESTIVAL

This documentary tells about the life, works, and legacy of that gifted artist, Gaetano Federici (1880-1964), who depicted with historical realism many leading athletic, civic and religious leaders of the city between 1904 and 1957.  Many of his works—whether larger-than-life statues, lunettes, pediments, or plaques in bronze or cast stone, studio pieces in plaster or clay—are examined in this documentary, with commentary from Passaic County Historian Edward A. Smyk and Federici biographer Flavia Alaya, with narration by William Paterson University Professor Vincent N. Parrillo.

DVDs available for purchase in gifts shops at Paterson Falls National Historic Park and Lambert Castle, Paterson, NJ
