A decade ago I was able to reconnect with my family on my fathers side in Italy. Since then I have been over to see them once or twice a year. This really makes me one of the luckiest people in the world. I have my Mother’s side of the family in Sweden next on my list!
My Great Grandfather (my grandfather’s father) Angelo Retrosi immigrated to the USA from, Alatri Italy.
My Grandmother’s father came to the USA from Veroli Italy.
Alatri and Veroli are 2 mountain top towns in the same region about 1/2 way between Rome and Naples. You can look across the valley and see one from the other.
To my Retrosi and Adolfi family- Here are photos from the last couple of trips. If you are ever interested in joining me on a trip, let me know. I am happy to take you.
