Luigi Del Bianco Recognition as Chief Carver on Mount Rushmore

Get the National Park Service to formally recognize Luigi Del Bianco as the Chief Carver on Mount Rushmore.

Why is this important?

Luigi Del Bianco lived the American Dream by coming to America and becoming the Chief Carver on Mount Rushmore. Luigi's job was in carving the "refinement of expression" in the faces. When you look at those 4 presidents, you are looking at the talent of a very gifted artist. This humble immigrant also is my grandfather. Even though our family has documentation that proves his value to the work, the National Park Service refuses to formally recognize his important title and great achievement. This is patently wrong on so many levels. Let's get the NPS to do the right thing!


Reasons for signing

  • I feel a connection since my parents were from a neighboring village to Meduno. I have been there myself. Many skilled trades/craftsman were from that area.
  • My family is from Port Chester and I love the stories of Italian -Americans realizing their dreams in this great country!
  • Luigi Del Bianco combined Italian genius and artistry with can-do American work ethic. Mount Rushmore is a national treasure, and as an Italian-American, I am proud to honor him. He should be formally recognized for his contribution to America, and American history!
