In the heart of Rosebank (Staten Island, NY) is the Garibaldi-Meucci Museum, located in the historic home of the inventor, Antonio Meucci.

Meucci was a prolific Italian inventor, engineer, and practical chemist who is most known for developing a voice communication apparatus, precursor of the telephone, in 1857.

 

Today the house is a museum and a National Landmark, owned and operated by the Order Sons of Italy in America.

 

You can visit the museum,  take a historical tour to discover more about Meucci and his friendship with Italian hero Giuseppe Garibaldi and enroll in Italian language classes.
