Danny Aiello – I Only Know who I am When I’m Somebody Else – Great Interview
Danny Aiello, the fifth of six children, was born on West 68th Street, Manhattan, the son of Italian American parents Frances (née Pietrocova), a seamstress who was a native of Naples, Italy, and Daniel Louis Aiello, Sr., a laborer.
Dan’s father deserted the family even though his wife had gone blind. For many years, Aiello had publicly condemned his father’s desertion of his children and his blind wife.
Aiello reconciled with his father in 1993, but to this day harbors a resentment of his father’s conduct.
