My paternal grandparents came from Abruzzo. My grandfather was Antonio Federico. My grandmother was Rosa Di Cenzo. They came from a village called Petranno sul Gizio near Sulmona. I would love to talk to anyone who is familiar with these family names or who is from there. Grazie mille

Hope to visit Taranta Peligna in the summer of 1999. My grandfather, Rocco Santarelli left there about 100 years ago. I wonder if there is anyone living there that is related? I would love to hear from anyone who is familiar with the area.

My grandparents came from Abruzzo and last August I had the opportunity to visit the town of Gessopalena where my grandfather was born. My second cousin is the mayor of the town and we spent a few days with him and his family. We had a wonderful time. The Abruzzo regione is breathtakingly beautiful.
My husband and I can not wait to return. On my next visit I would also like to go to Gissi, the town where my grandmother was born. We loved the food, too!
