Caricature of Sante Matteo

An artist made this caricature of Dr. Sante Matteo when he was a college student in 1969. Please note the elements that stereotypically depict Italian Americans: the Black Hand, the pocket knife, the violin case (probably hiding a tommy gun), the black shirt (possible reference to Fascism). And of course he is making wine pressing grapes with his feet.
