Lillian Galli (1896-1973), born in Brooklyn of Italian immigrant parents, used this board and rollers for making egg noodles and gnocchi. They were donated by her son, Warren Galli (b. 1923), who vividly recalled his mother rolling out flat noodles in the tradition of her northern Italian (Venetian) family, and serving them in chicken broth-based soups. The family lived on the corner of 70th Street and Hamilton Parkway in Brooklyn.
