San Marino is an enclave in Italy, on the border between the regioni of Emilia Romagna and Marche and about 10 km (6.21 mi) from the Adriatic coast at Rimini. Its topography is dominated by the Apennine mountain range, and it has a rugged terrain. The highest point in the country, the summit of Monte Titano, is situated at 749 m (2,457 ft) above sea level. There are no bodies of water of any significant size. San Marino is the third smallest country in Europe, with only Vatican City and Monaco being smaller. San Marino has no natural level ground; it is entirely in the hills.

Tessa,

This is our Pietro (my father-in-law). He died in 1982 and my husband does not know much about his family - I am trying to help him find out about his father and if he has any living relatives in Italy and possibly Argentina.

Thank you for this information. It will help very much.
