Tullio Bruno Bertini released Trapped in Tuscany (Dante University Press, 1998), which describes his adventures in Italy from 1939 to 1946. The Bertini family returned to the United States as repatriated Americans, and arrived in New York on February 1, 1946. They had sailed from Naples, Italy, on the Gripsholm, a Swedish ship that the U.S. was using to repatriate American citizens who had been stranded in Europe during World War II. Via Vai describes the next ten years in his life, from 1946 to 1956. It is interesting to note that ten years after his arrival in New York, Tullio had graduated from San Francisco State College with a BA degree and received a General Secondary Teaching Credential from the State of California. Later, during the summer of 1956, he received his Master's Degree. The ten years that transpired after his arrival in New York were very stressful and required a dedication to work and school. Via Vai describes life in South San Francisco at 310 West Orange Avenue.
