have changed. The carvers and
Hart agree that the biggest
problem is that architects no
longer value stone ornamentation
as they once did.
“We were always turning away
people at the Cathedral who
wanted to leam to carve,” says
Hart. “But there are no architects
creating a need for them.”
Whatever the cause, few boys
start out learning the craft as
Mongi and Palumbo did at the age
of rune or ten in Italy, working in
shops with ten or twelve other
apprentices. They are no longer
ordered to “watch my fingers, not
me” by haughty masters of the
trade, nor do they see carvers
receiving the respect Morigi’s
father would get when he came
home periodically from America,
where he worked on the Library of
Congress and other major
Morigi, too, worked on some of
the nation’s most important
buildings after arriving here in
1926; the U.S. Capitol, the Supreme
Court, the National Archives. But
like Palumbo, he has no sons
following him into the trade as both
followed their fathers

Sense of Importance
For this reason, perhaps, they
are anxious that others understand
why what they do is important.
“Our handiwork is going to stay
there forever,” one carver says in
the film, which may be seen on
public television.
“In our craft, you have
tremendous inner satisfaction,”
says Mongi. “You go home at
night and you go right to sleep
because you know you did your
best. Nobody can buy that. To me,
to come to work in the morning
was like coming to a second
“To me,” says Palumbo, “it
doesn’t matter if I carve a statue
or a gargoyle, or how difficult it is.
I give it the same attention. It is
another piece of work, and I do the
best I can.”
This dedication explains why,
when Palumbo’s family gathers,
the talk is of stone. His brother is a
stone cutter; so are his brother-in
law, his father, and other family
members. “Sometimes we start to
talk about something else, but
always we get back to talking
about stone.
“It’s in my blood.”
