      We will be in Italy in September.  We are still working on our itinerary. 

      Yes, I remember my grandparents’ house on Charlotte Ave. and I remember the staircase.

      My sister thinks that you and your sister were at her wedding.  She thought that someone live on Ayers.

      Also, I may have met you at the Sant’Amico dinner at Mt. Carmel.

      I remember someone telling me about the SPA site and I wrote down some information but lost it

      I look forward to hearing from Justine.

      Donald.  Your mom was my sister Elda Gentile Sofocleous,   Godmother.       We used to go to their home on  the east side of Youngstown to visit.   Do you remember the 2. Staircases in that house.   You might not remember.    Not sure of your age!                    I have attended the family funerals.     I remember both your grandparents DiIullos and Colaizzi sides, are. related to my family.    Anna Frazzini Gentile is my mom dad was Antonio Carl Gentile.    My daughter and her husband  visited SPA a few years  and rented a car.   The will be returning to SPA soon.  My daughter is on this site.   Her name is Justine.  I will let her know you posted on SPA site.  Have a great journey.  When are you traveling?

      Don, do you have a Maria Giuseppa Mazzocco or a Amodeo Mazzocco in your tree.

      My mother, Irma Ferrante (DiIullo), was born in San Pietro Avellana in 1921.

      My grandmother was Carmela Coliazzi.  My grandfather was Pasquale DiIullo.

      They  immigrated to Youngstown, Ohio when my mom was 6 years old.

      My Aunt Gina Mazzocco lived in SPA until her death.

      My wife and I visited SPA in 1983 and 1990.  At that time we took a train from Pescara to SPA and a bus to Roma.

      We would like to visit again this year in September with another couple.

      I do not know if there still is bus and train service there.

      Even if there is, we were thinking of taking a train from Rome to Isernia and then renting a car to go to San Pietro Avellana and Carovilli.

      I am looking for a car rental agency near the Isernia train station.

      Does anyone know if one exists?

      Are there any other suggestions on travel to the comune di SPA and comune di Carovilli?
