Sulmona has sent many of her sons and daughters all over the world over many, many decades. Some come back, plenty don’t, but what they all share is a sense of belonging to our fair city – a feeling passed down even to those who have yet to visit and whose sense of family and heritage draws them back here. 
Chris Di Censo from Boston and his extended family are visiting Sulmona in June of this year to re-connect with their roots and maybe meet some distant relatives, thanks to the help of our partner Mirella Ammirati from Southern Italy Travel. Here is Part I of his story.

"A different language is a different vision of life" - this quote by Federico Fellini could very well adapt to Paola Fraioli, a qualified teacher who is originally from Milan, has spent the last 24 years in Ireland. She loves teaching Italian and speaking languages. Having recently discovered Abruzzo she has moved to Pacentro with her family. The mountains and food are her twin passions so she is in the right place. Creativity and innovation applied! #italian   #learnitalian
