  • Luisa Del Giudice's book, Sabato Rodia's Towers in Watts (Fordham University Press, 2014), provides an insightful, thorough study of the man, his monuments, and their cultural and social meaning. Rodia was an artist completely possessed by his work, he was often derided as an incomprehensible crazy man. Now a National Historic Landmark and internationally renowned destination, the Watts Towers represent both a personal artistic expression and a collective symbol of Nuestro Pueblo--Our Town/Our People.
