Hello, My Mother was born in Montemarano, Avellino, Campania region in 1923.  In 1995, my Mom, sister and I went to Italy to visit family over Easter.  One day, they drove us to Montemarano to see where my Mom was born.  On our drive there, all of a sudden we stopped at the home of an older woman, who was the relative of my cousin's husband.  In her humble home, she had prepared a feast for us, using her white linen tablecloth and best china.  The meal was delicious.  We had no idea we would be eating there and felt so bad that we had not brought her a gift for her kindness.  So not only was it a thrill for us to see my Mom's hometown and the home where her family had lived, but we were once again shown Italian hospitality.  It is a very special memory for me, especially now that she has passed on.
