WHO WE ARE
Tom and Vilma are native Tampanians and YborCitians whose grandparents immigrated here from Italy, Spain and Cuba at the dawn of the twentieth century.
Tom’s grandfather, after short stints as a barber and shoemaker, eventually, sold produce from his own horse-drawn wagon on the streets of Ybor.
It is this unique nexus to Tampa and Ybor’s roots that has made them so passionate about sharing the intriguing history and culture of this very special “Port of Arrival” in “La America”.
WHAT WE DO
