When the Giuseppe first arrived in the United States from Italy, he was so poor he had no choice but to live in the ghetto.
However, he was a skilled businessman, and eventually made his fortune; yet he didn't want to forget his friends and neighbors who were so good to him during the early years.
Recognizing how much stress there was living in the ghetto, he went back there and built a spa where local residents could take hot tubs and get massages for free. For the young people, he bought some land, built a baseball diamond, and supplied some special baseballs that were easily caught in a baseball mitt, which gave the kids a feeling of competence and self worth.
That immigrant is credited with bringing to the America that famous Italian tradition, Spa Ghetto and Mitt Balls.
