Prince of Piedmont Lodge No. 475, Order of the Sons of Italy in America, observed one of its own rites of spring recently: The annual spring bocce tournament.

Prince of Piedmont Lodge was established to serve the burgeoning Italian-American community on Wilmington’s West Side and chartered in 1916, making it the first OSIA lodge in Delaware. The state has three other OSIA affiliated lodges: Giuseppe Verdi, also in Wilmington, St. Gabriel in New Castle and Caesar Rodney in Dover.
