    My mother was born October 6, 1921 in Pittsburgh, PA. Her father was August Tedesco; and her mother was Elvira Vento, sister of Josephine Vento (Ralph Santilli, husband), and brother of Anthony Vento. All of Spigno Saturnia. My mother’s ancestors all migrated to the United States, and settled in Pittsburgh, PA. I am arriving in Rome, Italy on July 4, 2015, and will depart Italy on July 11, 2015. I plan to visit Spigno during my visit to Italy. There is a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary that was donated and placed in the Spigno Saturnia Church in the memory of my grandmother (Elvira Tedesco. It is my intention to visit this church so that I may see the church and the statue. My uncle Pat Tamburino, is the general manager of the Spigno Saturnia Club in Pittsburgh, PA and I believe is related to the major of Spigno . . . I truly would love to get in touch with friends or relatives, so that our visit will be forever remembered and enjoyed . . . I am very excited to make this pilgrimage.

      Buddy, I hope you’ve found all that you were looking for and had a wonderful trip. I put in two of my ancestor’s names with the location of Spigno Saturnia and found this post of yours. I was pretty blown away. Several of my ancestors came to the US around 1900 from Spigno Saturnio and share surnames with your family. They were all located in Pittsburgh, PA and lived there for several decades. My maiden name is Tamberen, it appears it was originally Tamburino. My father’s father was Charles Tamberen, his father was Charles (originally Pasquale) Tamburino, his father was Luigi Tamburino. Luigi and his wife, Rose Tedesco Tamburino, emmigrated from Spigno Saturnio in 1900 with their newborn Pasquale.
      I’d be VERY interested in connecting with your uncle Pat Tamburino. I’m sure it’s a common name, but I wonder if many of the Tamburino family members were related. I’d LOVE to hear of any family finding you have. Even if we aren’t related, it confirms the original spelling of my surname! That’s a huge breakthrough for me!
