    I am Antonio D’Aloia’s granddaughter. My grandfather and I visited Cicciano in 1958 and again in 1964 stayed with his youngest brother Giuseppi and his family – wife Barbara, son Franco, daughter Rosa and son Luigi. they lived at Via Alfredo Nucci #19. My grandfather was able to bring Giuseppi, Barbara, Rosa and Luigi to America (Dayton, Ohio) to live in 1966(?) They didn’t like Dayton and went to Little Italy in New York and ultimately back to Cicciano.
    I am interested in knowing who is making these inquiries. Please feel free to email me. What is your connection to our family. Look forward to hearing from you.

    Dominic, Biago, Angelo and Guiseppe all lived on Via Alfredo Nucci and brother Aniello lived on the outskirts of Cicciano in a single family dwelling.
