My mother has been reading this with me. We are so excited and just love the opportunity it is giving us. My mother's parents were from Palmoli, Chieti. The entire web site has been a wonderful experience for her. We will keep reading and enjoying. Thank you.

Check out Monteferrante (CH) on August 27, 28, & 29 for their annual festival. The town has two restaurants, a bar and three areas to view the surronding country-side. The town's piazza sports a water fountain and people come from other towns to bottle the mountain spring water. You will not be disapointed spending an evening there on your vacation.

non ho trovato indicazioni su hotels ed accomodation in genere. Per il resto mi sembra una eccellente iniziativa.

I have an interest in finding out about my father's family. I only know that they came from the town of Castel De Iieri, but I don't know in which province it is located. I am planning a trip to Italy in the fall (October) and wondered if anyone could help me locate this town. Thanks

My Father(Attilio) and my mother(Ada) were born in FILETTO, CHIETI in 1927. Dad came out to Australia in 1953 and my mother followed in 1956. We have no relatives here and i often wonder how many relatives are out there. Could you please contact me if you are related or know of anyone from FILETTO. My mothers maiden name is DI RADO. My parents left Italy in 1952(DAD) and 1956(MUM). They came to Australia to make a better life for themselves. They are from Filetto (prov.Chieti) in Abruzzo. My parents names are Attilio (like me) and Ada.Is there anyone out there who is related to us. I would love to hear from you. Email me please.
