    2. My dad, from Tramonti (Giuseppe b1926) constantly told me Mario Cuomo (former Governor of NY) is my cousin. I clearly remember as a child visiting cousins with the Cuomo last name, and my dad loved his Italian homeland, and often said Amalfi was the most beautiful place on Earth. My mom was Irish, and I came over to the US as an “n/a” baby, as I was born in Dublin, Ireland, but I’ve always identified more with my Italian side, as more of my Italian family was in NY. My mom spoke Italian, which is how she met dad in Dublin, when he went there looking for work. I would love to find out more about the Amarante nee Apicella / Cuomo connection.
