    Having such a common name makes research difficult. I am trying to find out anything about my great grandfather, Giovanni Rossi, who was married to a Maria Belli. They lived in or near Credarola, Bardi. They may have moved to France for a time, but returne and their son, Giacomo Rossi married a Maria Gambarini on the 2nd December 1920 in Credarola.

    My other great grandfather, Giovanni Gambarini (1858-1946) married an Antonia Bertani (1861-1901). They lived in Credarola. Any help with either side of the family would be very helpful. The owner of the Piccolo bar, Bardi, Umberto Gambarini, is related.
