Hi, I am Antonella Colaiacolo and Susy, we are the 9th and the 11th... Uncle Antonio greets you affectionately... and is writing to you the story of Giovanna Urgola. Antonio Urgola was married to Grazia Franco and they gave birth to our grandmother Giovanna Urgola... Due to the famine in Naples they first got married and then emigrated to America in 1904/1905 where they did the most humble works, this is the story told to my father by nonna Grazia saying that at that time in America there was the black hand (camorra, mafia)- My grandmother Giovanna was born in America in 1908, at that time also in America there was poverty and they resisted 5/6 years then they decide to return to Naples. In 1914/1915 nonno Antonio took nonna Grazia and the daughter to the steamer and he promised that they would come back as soon as he had made enough mney for the trip. Nonna Grazia was a good and honest woman and she was convinced and she left for Naples...But later on nonna Grazia told that nonno (Antonio) was a womanizer... But nonno never came back to Naples.
Nonna Grazia was informed that nonno shad another woman and had a new family with her... since then Nonna Grazia lived as if she was a widow wile his husband was procreating child in America... Then in 1936 they learned that nonno was dead, we don't know how, maybe an accident, we don't know the truth.. My father remembers, as if it was yesterday, at the table with their grandmother Grazia mother Giovanna and himself Antonio who was only 5 years old... Grand mother Giovanna lived until she was 80 without knowing her father...and also her mother, nonna Grazia, did not have any correspondence with her husband until 1941 when the war started and everything finished... and they broke any relationships. My father is named Antonio, he was born in Naples on July 18, 1931, to Giovanna Urgola and Francesco Colaiacolo, first born. I am glad that I saw a picture of my grandfather before dying and I'm sorry that my mother could not see it... Dear giovanna I don't like America because you forget your loves and the family... A hug to all of you my grandchild (nephews) and all relatives a warm greeting to my brother, the wife and children and to your mother Antonietta. A big kiss to my brother Domenico that passed away...
Greeting Antonio, Napoli
Written by Antonella Colaiacolo
Revised by Susy Colaiacolo

If you can , please get in touch with the son of Vincenzo Urgola and tell him the story of our grandmother and our great-grandfather..

greetings Antonella
