PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — KDKA Radio’s Rob Pratte spoke with Western Pennsylvania documentary director Michael DiLauro about his new film “La Mia Strada.”

The documentary offers a personal perspective on ethnicity and tradition as it links ancient Italian traditions and contemporary Italian culture, with its Italian-American counterpart. “La Mia Strada” translated to English means “My Road.”

A screening of “La Mia Strada” will take place at the Heinz History Center on January 27, 2013  at 2:30 p.m.

A celebrated director and producer of documentaries, television programs, commercials and corporate productions, DiLauro has earned five regional Emmys, a Blue Ribbon at the American Film Festival, several ADDY awards and the Gabriel award for outstanding television programming.
