LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  mourning  the  death  of Angelo Zuccolo, actor,
stage director,  published  poet,  professor  emeritus  of  theatre  and
devoted member of his community

WHEREAS,  It  is  the  custom of this Legislative Body to pay tribute to
citizens of the State of New York  whose  lifework  and  civic  endeavor
served to enhance the quality of life in their communities and the great
State of New York; and
  WHEREAS,  Angelo Zuccolo of Dickinson, New York, died on May 15, 2013,
at the age of 72; and
  WHEREAS, Angelo Zuccolo was born  into  a  family  of  actors,  poets,
sculptors,  painters  and  singers; within this context, the enchantment
and romance of a world filled with sensory, sensuous and sensual  poetry
were present from sunrise to sunset; and
  WHEREAS,  His  insights  into  the flavor and spice of the human heart
simmered with the delicate aroma of love both found and often  lost;  he
performed in stage, film and television in the United States and abroad,
including the title role in James Joyce's "Finnegan's Wake" at the pres-
tigious  Holland  Festival in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and Ligurio in
Machiavelli's "The Mandrake" at Norway's Fana Festival; and
  WHEREAS, He directed over 300 stage and media productions,  served  as
artistic  director  of the renowned Leonard Melfi Repertory Theatre, and
was the author of myriad playscripts and teleplays; and
  WHEREAS, His collection of Italian-American short  stories,  REMEMBER!
WE  COME  FROM  GOOD STOCK, was received with acclaim both in the United
States and in  Italy,  and  his  trilogy  of  romantic  poetry  received
national applause for its insights into the caring human heart; and
  WHEREAS,  A  quintessential thespian, Angelo Zuccolo spent 30 years as
the Theater Director at Broome Community College; there is a scholarship
in his name for excellence in theater; and
  WHEREAS, Predeceased by his parents, Edith and Angelo Zuccolo,  Angelo
Zuccolo is survived by daughters, Angelique and Marielle; and
  WHEREAS,  Armed  with  a  humanistic spirit and imbued with a sense of
compassion, Angelo Zuccolo leaves behind a legacy which will long endure
the passage of time and will remain as a comforting  memory  to  all  he
befriended; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
mourn the death of Angelo  Zuccolo,  actor,  stage  director,  published
poet, professor emeritus of theatre and devoted member of his community;
and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the family of Angelo Zuccolo.
