Doctor Francesco "don Ciccio" Ricci and Maria Vinc

Postby DonnaMariaL » 27 Mar 2011, 15:01

Hi,
I just recently found out my mother was adopted. She was the 4th child born to Maria Vincelli in 1944 in the Larino area. Maria had 3 other children with her husband (I don't know his name, only surname Vincelli, and I don't know Maria's maiden name) who was killed in a hunting accident. Maria and a prominent Obstetrician/Gynecologist Doctor Francesco "don Ciccio" Ricci who she worked for had a relationship and got pregnant with my mother, who was put up for adoption at birth because Maria apparently died during childbirth, however an extensive records search has not yielded a death certificate. The Dr. apparently was 71 years old when he fathered my mother. We know he had his own family with grown children at the time, but not sure if his spouse was deceased at the time of this union between him and Maria. We have some info on him thru research my brother has been doing with records depts. in Italy. Apparently the Ricci family in the Casacalenda/Campobasso area is still a very affluent family and they own Villa Borzillo near Rome which is an upscale catering hall. I am curious to know if anyone is familiar with anything about Maria or Francesco. It seems we have more info on him. My mother did meet her half siblings once when they went to Bonefro to meet her as a young girl of 9 or 10 years old, and they were in the 17-19 year old range. Because my mother was so young she had no way to keep in contact with them, and frankly her adoptive mother probably didn't want them to have contact for fear of them "taking her away" as she told me.

Hi, I found that a "Don Ciccio" Ricci, Obstetrician/Gynecologist Doctor, of Larino, well the full name was Francesco Maria Alberto RICCI, but he was called Don Ciccio...
source: http://www.frentanalarino.com/attualita ... ibaldi.pdf
article by Napoleone Stelluti, writer
"Villa Borzilla" really is "Villa Borzillo" in Larino

Thank you Suanj, I do have the same article and info that my brother sent me last week. I made a typo in Borzillo and made it Borzilla by mistake..I corrected it above. I also sent an email to the Villa Borzillo website last week, no reply yet. I didn't mention any family inquiries, just inquiry about the Villa, being a business I would think they would contact me back, nothing yet. Thank you for your research!!
