Former Hartford Mayor Ann Uccello has a street in the capital city named in her honor, and now has one in her ancestral homeland in Sicily.
On July 3rd, officials in Canicattini Bagni renamed the street where her father was born, for the political trailblazer who became the first woman in the United States elected mayor of a capital city.
Canicattini Mayor Paolo Amenta unveiled the street signs with the help of author Paul Pirrotta of Hartford, who wrote Uccello’s biography. Now 94, the former mayor did not make the trip, but her nephew Dave Gustafson of West Hartford, his wife Jackie, and others were there for the historic occasion.
