    Hi Anita,

    Your dad showed me a picture of the road sign in Italy that your grandparents were born. Anyway, he liked it and he is showing me others. Incidentally, it something we should get for signage in Friday Harbor!

  2. Hi All:

    I just came across this website……my parents too were from Sassoferrato… dad (Luigi) left Sassoferrato in 1913 initially at age 16 for America, then returned sometime afterward to marry my mom (Anita)……I have never visited Sassoferrato yet, but it is on my “bucket list” to do…..actually, I lived in Naples, Italy for about 3 1/2 years as a military officer, but never had the opportunity to visit Sassoferrato……unfortunately……ah well……but I did notice that the Rossi family has commented on this site…..any relation here, because our family knew the extended “Rossi family” real well from Sassoferrato that eventually resided in Scranton, Pennsylvania……just a thought…..if there was a connection…….in fact, I delivered morning newspapers to the Rossi family for many many years as a young paperboy too… any case, hope all is well if you ever get to read this memo. as always, ‘lil Louie.

    My father, Adamo Albertini, came from Sassoferrato. He left Sassoferrato in 1906, at the age of 16, and came to America. He worked in the coal mines in north eastern Penn Scranton. He later came west and met my mother. My family grew up in Salt Lake City. Utah . I have been back to Sassoferrato and love the place. I saw the house where my father, his brother, and three sisters we all born and raised. I love the Italian life.

Le Marche (pronounced “lay markey”), along with Tuscany and Umbria, make up the eastern side of central Italy, between the Adriatic Sea and the high Apennine mountains. It’s an area that people visit to see the “real” Italy.

My grandparents, Tony Rossi and Delia Toni are from Sassoferrato, a small town in Le Marche. I visit often as it is still home to many extended family members and friends.
