please, any help would be appreciated. i am trying to find a specific presentosa which was originally purchased in Torre de'Passeri. It is much like the one pictured third down for sale in the shop category on this site. The only difference being that mine had only one heart in the middle and the one pictured here has two. If anyone has any information on how i can go about getting another please let me know. Thank you

My Grandfather Antonio Rossi was born in 1881 and lived in Isola Del Gran Sasso d'Italia. His father was Filippo Rossi and his mother was Francesca Rossi. He came to America in 1903 by way of Naples. His story was his mother died when he was young. His father remarried and he had two half sisters. His father raised sheep. When his father died, his half-sisters contacted him to tell him he was the only male heir to his father's property. My Grandfather declined the property and gave it to his half sisters. My Grandfather settled in Milwaukee Wisconsin by way of Philadelphia Pennsylvania. I know it has been a long time, but if anyone has any information regarding his family in Italy, please let me know. Thank you.
