Family Reunion in Calabria
Michael Muro enjoyed another vacation and family reunion in Italy last month. He travelled to Agropoli first and then to Calabria to meet-up with Antonio and Aldisa Aiello. Travelling to Calabria with Michael was Peter Muro, son of the late Peter and Angie (nee Carola) Muro. Peter’s wife remained in Agropoli visiting with Anna Communale and other relatives.
In Calabria, Peter and Michael enjoyed lunch with Antonio and Aldisa at “Il Pirata” (The Pirate) restaurant. Michael said that the restaurant faced a beautiful beach which made the event even more memorable. The restaurant made a delicious seafood salad that included calamari and mussels. Antonio, Aldisa and Peter enjoyed Frutta di Mare Sphaghetti. Michael went with having rice instead of any kind of pasta.
Antonio’s sister Rosina and her son Alessio will meet-up with Michael on his next trip to Calabria. In just a little over a year, thanks to the family history project and this blog, Michael has connected to Antonio Aiello, the nephew of his beloved paternal Grandmother, the late Rosina Aiello Marasco Muro. Michael has also met Antonio’s children and is in touch with them, too. What was also good was that Peter Muro got to meet Antonio during this trip.
To read about how we all came together in such an unplanned and amazing way please see our previous postings listed after Michael’s photos from his visit to Calabria.
