  1. My maternal lineage is from Cerro al Volturno. My grandfather, Emilio DiCola, was born and raised there. He married Giuseppe Rossi from castel San Vincenzo. They emigrated to the United States 100 years ago. I am a citizen of both the United States and Italy. My Italian citizenship is based in Cerro al Volturno. I have been to Castel San Vincenzo many times but have never visited Cerro al Volturno. I will visit there soon.

  2. Hi RoseAnn,
    It seems that we are cousins! My great grandmother was Beatrice Diorio (née Milano), and her mother was Pulcheria Milano (née Di Cola). Her father was Gennaro Di Cola. I’ve never visited Cerro al Volturno either, but would love to!
