    Hi! My grandparents were born in Falvaterra. They were Umberto “Albert” Piccirilli and Giovannina “Rosa” Andreozzi of Barrington, RI. My father’s godfather was a Gasbarro who married an Andreozzi and came to Providence, RI. Other ancestral names are De Angelis, Ceccarelli, d’Alessandris, all from Falvaterra. I have just come into possession of some very old photographs, unfortunately mostly without names.
