Sophia Petrillo is probably one of the best Italian characters to ever be featured on television. I know she’s Sicilian, but it still counts. I love everything about this brilliant little spitfire. Sophia showed the audience that being old doesn’t mean you have to lose your will to live. She was the mothering heart of the show that told it like it was and made no apologizes.
Here are 10 of Sophia Petrillo’s peak Sicilian moments.
