This is an in-depth section on my visit to my relatives in Avellino. Warning! there are lots and lots of family pictures in here!

Avellino is a regional center in the province of Campania. My mother was born and grew up in this area, leaving shortly after the second world war, when she married my Dad and moved to Canada. My Mom's family name is Perugini, and she is the only one who permanently left Italy. As a result, there are many relatives of mine here!

I want to thank my Aunt Rosetta for once again generously letting us stay at her wonderful villa in Avellino. It was a very convenient base, and the company, food, and hospitality you showed us were first-rate, as always!
