Campus presentation focuses on Mount Rushmore

“In the Shadow of the Mountain,” a one-person play dramatizing the life of Luigi Del Bianco, the chief sculptor of Mount Rushmore, will be performed 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19, in Room 132 of DeBartolo Hall on the campus of Youngstown State University.

The free public presentation, sponsored by the Department of World Languages and Cultures at YSU, features Lou Del Bianco, Bianco’s grandson. The younger Bianco portrays his grandfather to tell the story of his contribution to the carvings in South Dakota, using authentic photos and maps. Lou Del Bianco’s new book, Out of Rushmore’s Shadow, will be available for purchase.
