Guiseppe Barone, my maternal great-grandfather, left this humble mountaintop agricultural community a century ago. Elevation 4,000 feet! When we researched the families in the Archivio di Stato, the various State archives, invariably our male forebears' occupation was listed either as agricultura or contadina. Either way you spell it, it still means farmer. Amazing! Avellino is located about an hours drive up a steep, verdant, cloud-besotted mountain from Avellino.
