Roger Boschetti (right) and Papa Gianni at Cafe Trieste in SF. Papa Gianni is the owner of the cafe which has a Saturday afternoon music show that is a North Beach tradition. Mr. Boschetti is a telivision producer who many many years ago used to host a show where Papa Gianni and his family would do musical performances. He still runs the Italian Telecast company which has distribution in 72 countries. Cafe Trieste is also known as the place where a young Francis Ford Coppola used to sit and work on the screenplay for The Godfather. -- Dav via Danger Hiptop [home]
