Nonna = Love

Part of my extended family includes Carlo, who is a 1st gen Italian American, and his beautiful wife Denise. Carlo’s family has a fascinating history. His Mother, lovingly known as Nonna, saved her family from execution by Mussolini’s army after her convent was bombed when she was just 16. Also in their family tree is Giuseppe Leonardo Albanese, Albanian royalty and later Italian government leader who was sentenced to the guillotine in 1899. Can you imagine?
