Cemetery in Fiorentino, San Marino

Postby dpaul2211 » 11 Apr 2011, 15:17

I am trying to find contact information for the Cemetery in Fiorentino, San Marino. Two young men who lived in Ohio in my hometown were killed in World War Two. They were Leonello and Roberto Berardi. San Marino officials placed a plaque in their honor in the
Cemetery in Fiorentino, San Marino in 1961, and I am hoping to determine if the plaque still exists. The young men were both born in San Marino, but emigrated to the United States when they were young children.

Found this listing in the Italian Phone Book (cimitero = cemetery) :-)

I believe that the plaque is still existing because there is a reference on it on this site:

http://www.sanmarinokey.com/castelli-sa ... fiorentino

Nel cimitero di Fiorentino riposano le spoglie dei fra­telli Roberto e Leonello Berardi, figli di emigrati nel­l'Ohio, caduti rispettivamente in Olanda e a Cassino men­tre erano arruolati nell'esercito statunitense. Una lapide alla loro memoria fu scoperta il 25 marzo 1961. Alla cerimonia presenziarono diplomatici e ufficiali americani.
