JOSEPH DIMINO - THE MAN

 

Text by Richard Johnson
Page Composition by Kes Winwood

 

 

Both Joseph and his wife Brigette are native born Italians and naturalized USA citizens. Joseph is a computer aided mechanical designer (CAD) by profession, and he was working in that capacity in the US where he met Brigette. They were married and lived in the US for a number of years. Eventually, they returned to Italy due to Joseph's illness, since treatment was more affordable, i.e., covered by the Italian socialized medical program. He calls Brigette his guardian angel as she has stood by him and aided him through the ups and downs of his illness. They have a lovely daughter, Enza Cynthia Dimino.

 

Their beautiful home overlooks the sea in the town of Sciacca on the island of Sicily in Italy. The furnishings are Italian purchased in Italy, sent to the US when they lived there and bought back with them to Italy. Their garden is marvelous with hibiscus integrated into the landscape providing them both with great pleasure, but keeping Brigette very busy.
