I was born in Castropignano in May 1951. I emigrated with my family in December 28, 1963 arrived in Halifax, NS by the now retired ship Saturnia on January 1964. I was reunited with my father and my other sister in Toronto, Canada and have been here ever since. I went back to see the village I left many years ago in 1992. I was scheduled to return once more in May 2019, but had to cancel our trip due to the covid-19 pandemic.
