Visited Popoli in Abruzzo in May of 99. A great experience. People were very gracious, driving a breeze, food,drink and housing great. Found language not to be a barrier to a pleasant visit.

Very happy to have found this site. I will be traveling to
Abruzzo in 2001 to live for one year. Purpose is to
fill in our family tree. My father Joseph Petrillo was born
somewhere in Abruzzo, I believe about 1890.
Any information about the surname Petrillo, Petrilli
or any other derivative would be welcome.

Ho letto di Abruzzo 2000 in un articolo di Mila Fiordalisi su Il Messaggero, edizione Abruzzo. Non credevo che fosse una iniziativa così interessante. Consente di mantenere, soprattutto a chi vive lontano, magari dall'altra parte del mondo, un legame con la propria terra. Con le proprie radici che nessuno e niente può mai cancellare. Ciao a tutti.
