Visiting Italian Relatives - 2002
October 2002, Donald, Garay,
and Jim Goglio joined Dick on a trip to Italy. In addition to
the Milan and Italian Treasures tour, They visited relatives in
Torino (Turin), and the Comune di Alpette. They also visited the
small town of Goglio in the Alps near the Swiss border. Here are
some of the photographs.
In Torino we were treated
to the gracious hospitality of Adriana Ceretto Obertino, the widow
of our cousin Constantino and her wonderful family.

Adriana and her family, and also to meet Diogini Seren Bernadone
and his wife. We also were gracefully hosted by Arturo Felletti,
his wife Simona, and mother Lina Goglio. Arturo and his uncle
Graziano Goglio gave us a tour of Alpette.
