Annual Abruzzese Sausage Making Extravaganza
By Sandra Tornberg
More than 35 years ago a
tradition was started by the
late Giulio and Connie Badia.
They opened their home to
about ten paesani for the
purpose of making sausage,
salami, and prosciutto in the
Abruzzese tradition. Back
in those days they started out
with one hundred pounds of
pork meat, and eventually
worked their way up to almost
six hundred pounds.
About ten years ago the
operation moved to the home
of Chris and Rosanne Pelino,
where it takes place every
year the weekend of the
Martin Luther King holiday.
They started out in the Pelino
basement, but have since
moved out to the
heated garage. This
year they bought
2,800 pounds of meat,
which was made
into 950 salami, 700
pounds of sausage
(both meat and liver),
and 1,150 pounds of
prosciutto.

They continue to use the recipe
that came from the town of
Barisciano in the province
of l’Aquila. However,
there have been some
modifications to the
process. For example,
Chris explained that they
now buy casings that are
already tied at one end,
which has proven to be a
timesaver.

Italian American Cultural Society
Meet Mike Calcaterra
By Sandra Tornberg
Wujek-Calcaterra & Sons,
Inc. is a long-time supporter of
the Italian American Cultural
Society. Their full-page ad
that occupies the inside back
page of The Italian American
helps to underwrite the
publication of our monthly
newspaper. In addition this
family-owned business is a
sponsor of our Festa Italiana,
Sportsmen Dinner, and many
other events and can always
be counted on to purchase
raffle tickets that support our
fundraising activities. They
even pay for the subscriptions
to the magazines found in our
lobby.
they moved again to Moross
and Kelly Roads in Detroit
and continued to serve the
community from this modern
facility. As the east side Italian
American population moved
north to Macomb County,
Larry and his longtime friend
Ed Wujek established the
Wujek-Calcaterra
Funeral
Home at Schoenherr and
Metropolitan Parkway to
accommodate their needs.
When I recently had the
pleasure of meeting Larry
Calcaterra and his son
Mike, I asked Larry why
supporting the IACS is
so important to them. He
quickly replied, “Because
it is the hub of the Italian
community.”
Indeed the Calcaterra
family has a long tradition
of serving our community.
In 1913, Frank J. Calcaterra
opened his first funeral
home at Rivard and Wilkins
in Detroit.
He came to
know virtually everyone in
the Italian community, from
common laborers to judges,
and was dedicated to helping
people. His brothers Louis
FEBRUARY 2014
and Paul joined him, and
the funeral home moved to a
larger facility on East Grand
Boulevard in 1937.
Louis’ sons Louis, Jr, Frank,
Paul, and Larry joined the
family business. In 1958
Larry, recognizing that times
and trends change, sought to
bring fresh, new concepts to
the funeral business.
His
sons Larry P. Matthew, and
Mike are helping to fulfill his
vision for the future. They
opened another location,

Dyke in Shelby Township in
1998, and continue to provide
exceptional quality at a fair
value to the community.
Now Larry is “retired” and
his three sons are the fourth
generation of Calcaterras
tending to the needs of local
families. These three young
men represent the latest
generation of a respected
family name, which remains
today an institution in Italian
tradition throughout the tricounty area. Their reward
comes when, at a family’s
most critical moment, the
loss of a loved one, the
first words uttered are “call
Calcaterra”, spoken with
complete confidence. What a source of inner
pride it must have been for
the entire Calcaterra family
to have developed sincere
relationships which go back
three or four generations.
Mike told me that theirs
is a unique profession that
has allowed them to serve
generations of families who
have sought their assistance.
“Celebrating life is something
my family takes to heart”,
said Mike. “We hope to
continue to earn the trust of
this community by treating
families fairly and being kind
when they need us most.”
I asked Mike if there would
be a fifth generation of
Calcaterras carrying on the
family tradition. He advised
that all three Calcaterra
brothers have teen-aged
children.
Mike proudly
reported that his daughter told
him that she thinks his job is
“cool”. So there is cause for
optimism!
The IACS is grateful to
Wujek-Calcaterra & Sons,
Inc. for their long-standing
friendship and support.

La Fiat prende il 100% di Chrysler
Intesa con Veba, ora più vicina la fusione. . Elkann: aspetto questo giorno dal 2009. L’ad: siamo un costruttore globale
!
I vertici Fiat: da sinistra John Elkann con Sergio Marchionne
A cura di TEODORO
C H I A R E L L I T
CONSIGLIAMO:
Inizio d’anno con il botto
per John Elkann e Sergio
Marchionne. Fiat, infatti, ha
annunciato ieri che acquisirà
da Veba la partecipazione
del 41,5% detenuta dal
fondo sanitario del sindacato
americano Uaw, salendo
così al 100% in Chrysler. Il
closing è previsto entro il 20
gennaio 2014. Veba riceverà
3,65 miliardi di dollari (2,7
miliardi di euro), di cui
1,75 miliardi in contanti
da Fiat e 1,9 miliardi come
dividendo
straordinario
da parte di Chrysler. In
realtà per l’acquisizione
dell’intero pacchetto del
41,5% detenuto da Veba in
Chrysler, Fiat pagherà cash
solo 1.750 milioni di dollari
(poco meno di 1,3 miliardi di
euro) e lo farà utilizzando la
propria liquidità disponibile.
Il Lingotto, infatti, ha
annunciato ufficialmente che
non ci sarà alcun aumento di
capitale. Ancora una volta Marchionne
ha dimostrato straordinarie
doti
di
negoziatore,
riuscendo a evitare l’Ipo in
Borsa paventata da Veba
e spuntando, al termine di
un lungo braccio di ferro,
un prezzo decisamente più
basso rispetto alle previsioni
di tanti osservatori. Le
banche che stavano facendo
da advisor per l’eventuale
quotazione
avevano
concordemente indicato un
valore dell’intera casa di
Detroit intorno ai 10 miliardi
di dollari. Una valutazione
che valorizzava la quota
Veba a 4,2 miliardi, mentre il
fondo sembrava intenzionato
a chiederne addirittura
5 («Che si comprino un
biglietto della lotteria», era
stata la sferzante reazione di
Marchionne). In totale per l’acquisizione
del 100% della terza major
automobilistica americana la
Fiat ha pagato cash, in varie
fasi, 3,7 miliardi di dollari,
poco più di 2,7 miliardi di
euro. Nel 1998 Daimler
pagò 36 miliardi di dollari,
mentre nel 2007 il fondo
Cerberus, per l’80%, sborsò
7,4 miliardi di dollari. Comprensibile, quindi, la
soddisfazione di Elkann.
«Aspetto questo giorno sin
dal primo momento, sin da
quando nel 2009 siamo stati
scelti per contribuire alla
ricostruzione di Chrysler - ha
detto il presidente di Fiat - Il
lavoro, l’impegno e i risultati
raggiunti da Chrysler negli
ultimi 4 anni e mezzo sono
qualcosa di eccezionale.
Colgo questa opportunità
per dare formalmente il
benvenuto a tutte le persone
di Chrysler nella nuova realtà
frutto dell’integrazione di
Fiat e Chrysler». Stesso entusiasmo da parte
di Marchionne, che corona
all’inizio del suo decimo
anno alla guida del Lingotto
il suo disegno di creare un
unico gruppo fra Torino
e Detroit. «L’acquisto del
100% di Chrysler - ha
commentato l’ad di Fiat e
presidente e ad di Chrysler
- ci permetterà di realizzare
pienamente la nostra visione
di creare un costruttore di
auto globale con un bagaglio
di esperienze, punti di vista
e competenze unico al
mondo». Non solo. «Nella vita di ogni
grande organizzazione e delle
sue persone ci sono momenti
importanti, che finiscono nei
libri di storia ha proseguito L’accordo appena raggiunto
con Veba è senza dubbio
uno di questi momenti per
Fiat e per Chrysler. Sarò
per sempre grato al team di
leadership per il sostegno
e l’incessante impegno nel
realizzare il progetto di
integrazione che oggi assume
la sua forma definitiva». A
fronte della vendita della
partecipazione in Chrysler,
spiega il Lingotto, Veba
riceverà un corrispettivo
complessivo pari a 3.650
milioni di dollari. Subito
un’erogazione straordinaria
che Chrysler pagherà a tutti i
soci, per circa 1.900 milioni
di dollari (Fiat girerà al fondo
la sua quota di competenza). Al closing Fiat verserà a
Veba i rimanenti 1.750
milioni di dollari. Chrysler
e il sindacato Uaw hanno
inoltre
concordato
un
“memorandum
d’intesa”,
a integrazione dell’attuale
contratto collettivo dei
lavoratori del gruppo, in
cui sono previste altre
contribuzioni da parte della
società di Auburn Hills a
Veba per 700 milioni di
dollari in quattro quote
paritetiche pagabili su base
annua. Il
pagamento
della
prima
quota
avverrà
in
concomitanza
con
il
perfezionamento
dell’operazione con Fiat,
mentre le tre rimanenti
quote saranno versate nei
tre anni successivi nel
giorno
dell’anniversario
del pagamento della prima
quota. h t t p : / / w w w. l a s t a m p a .
