    Italian?

    Ciao Marco. Jack, not Frank, although I do have a brother called Francisco (Frank). Originally from Spain. LOVE Italy, by the way. Lived in Milano from 1991 to 1994 and loved it. I would move back to Italy in a second.

    Jack, I quoted Frank Petronio and was referring to him, and then I apologize with you for the OT .
    Anyway, great to hear that you lived in, and still love, Italy!!!!
    I live very close to Milan, about 20 miles, if you ever will come here again give me a "call" (my email address is on my website), we can go out and have a dinner together (and you'll be my guest, of course!!!).

    Sorry, another OT : did you work in Milan as a photographer?

    Ciao
    Marco

    Hi Marco, Most of my ancestors came from the countryside around Palermo, Sicily, but I am not sure if that really qualifies them as Italians. My daughter has studied in Italy and studies Italian at college. The funny thing is that after being "Americanized" we feel more like northerners.

    Petronio wrote the "Satyricon" during Nero's reign; there was also a General Petronius who killed all the jews in Libya during Roman times. While it would be nice to claim Roman heritage, I suspect that my ancestors were southern serfs who took their master's name. Anyway, "Petronio" is still popular family name - there is a great modern dancer in San Francisco (The Stephen Petronio Company), a tool making company in Italy, a chain of fancy menswear shops (I have a shirt), and Linda Petronio - a hot blonde Italian pornstar.

    Thank you for the (great!!) reply Frank, I can't stop laughing for the porno star thing...

    Palermo, Sicilia, yes, definitely Italy ...without being americanized, even if I really LOVE hiking in the South West (I usually spend my vacation between Utah and Arizona), I'm a northern guy (Milan) with a southern "blood" (my mother is from Lipari - Sicily)...

    Ciao
    Marco
