SYNOPSIS:

Ciao Bambino tells the story of overcoming heartbreak, embracing immigration, and adapting to the language and social traditions of Italian Americans in New York during the 1950’s.  A story filled with passion, determination, love, and laughter that the entire family can enjoy, and sing along too!

Elizabetta, a young, courageous woman from Italy, in 1950 moves to New York City in hopes of creating a new life, and ends up finding herself through music, laughter and love. Establishing a new life in America,Elizabetta deals with the challenges of trying to fit into an “American” society, while also staying true to her “Italian” traditions.

While pursuing love and music, Elizabetta discovers her passion and joy in the areas where she least expected she would. Songs include original music that reflects the sounds of the Mediterranean infused with the sounds of the 50’s, titles including “It feels good to be Italian”, “I want to be in Italy”, “Vita Mia” and “La mia estate amore”.
