For some 20 years he had been married to the prominent U.S. West Coast music patron Betty Freeman. The couple began hosting musicales in their art-filled Beverly Hills home. According to critic Alan Rich the salons became “the Los Angeles Sunday afternoon hot ticket”, featuring such big names such as Philip Glass, Elliott Carter, John Cage and Pierre Boulez, as well as younger artists just beginning their careers. The programs always ended with a pasta feast cooked by Assetto. Freeman ended the programs after he died in 1991. In 1978 composer Lou Harrison once wrote a tribute for the two called “Serenade for Betty Freeman and Franco Assetto”.
In 1987, he created a statue placed in Raoul Wallenberg Square at Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles. The work of art named “Angel of Rescue” is an 18-foot sculpture of Raoul Wallenberg, a Swedish hero of the Holocaust. It depicts a bronze silhouette of Wallenberg flanked by two polished stainless steel “wings.” Assetto donated his services and the Jewish Community Foundation/Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Fund provided the funds to build it. Other public art projects include the Via Crucis in St. Basil Catholic Church, Los Angeles, and The Big Candy in MacArthur Park, Los Angeles.
