An educated and traveled woman who immigrated to the United States when only a toddler grew-up learning of her heritage. She studied in Perugia and Florence taking it upon herself to visit different provinces which opened her eyes and mind to the beauty of a different world. She then proceeded to continue traveling to the rest of the beautiful ancient country. Her journeys took her to Rome, Genoa, Bologna, Pisa, Milan, Florence, Perugia, Bari, Foggia, Assisi, Sienna, Orvieto, Venice, Naples, Tuscany, Padua, Stresa, Lugano, Lago Maggiorre and Lago Como, which are located in Switzerland, and of course Pescara, which is located in central Italy on the eastern side of the boot along the Adriatic Sea, her birth place. Ever since then traveling and seeing other countries was established.
