In this 2012 interview with Jeanne Cutillo, she speaks about her childhood growing up in Shaker Heights, where her father, Albert Pucciani, built many homes there. She speaks about the innocent time of the 1930s through the 1950s, where kids played on their own without fear or danger. She also talks about the many famous residents that lived in Shaker, which once held one of the richest zip codes in the United States. Her family overcame the boundaries of the Van Sweringens, but soon moved away from Shaker after moving to Italy with her husband in the 1960s. Though it has been long since her residence in Shaker Heights, she remembers the beautiful homes her father built, most of which still stand today.
