Thank you!

Btw, was Strada Bernarducci the mother of Grazia Viola?

Also do you have birth and or death dates for Gaetano Liguori, Grazia Viola, Alessio Viola and Strada Bernarducci?

And were you able to find a Giovanna Liguori?

Thanks alot for your help! You are the best!

Oh, no! :) Strada Bernarducci is the address of the Street where Leonardo was born: Strada means "Road".
I did not look for other acts; you can try and look by yourself; there are indexes for every year ("nati" = "births"; "morti"="deaths"; "matrimoni="marriages"). If you don't manage it, tell us and we'll take a look for you.

Hi, I cannot find this street on google maps:

Strada Bernarducci, Troia, Foggia, Italy

Perhaps it no longer exists?

It is still there. Try typing in Via Bernaducci, Troia, Foggia, Italy. It looks like it is just a little street.

Sometimes the word "Strada" is used and sometimes the word "Via" is used in our records.

Good luck.

Hi, this wasn't far from the church!

Do you know if this address was a residence or some sort of hospital?

I’m sorry I don’t know this, but it would appear that, according to Leonardo’s Birth Act here, the address mentioned in the links is only a few houses away and possibly across the road from where Leonardo’s parent’s lived. It may have even been one of the houses there in the pic so that’s got to be exciting. Did you click on the pic? You can blow it up. You really only see the tops of the houses but still....

I’m not exactly sure which church you are meaning here. I would have to go through and read all your posts to find out. I have had a thought though that I will mention: Sometimes churches have had hospital’s associated with them. Just a thought.

Keep going with it. Good luck to you.

Hi, I did click on the links you gave, thank you very much... I also just found out that google maps (http://maps.google.com) has street views of the entire town, which is absolutely awesome.

... and this is the church I speak of, the Troia Cathedral:

Troia Cathedral

You are very welcome. That is awesome.

I did wonder whether the Cathedral on Via Regina Margherita was the one you were referring to but got thrown by the words “church” and “cathedral”. I guess they are the same thing?

I’ve just been reading through, in absolute awe, the Wikipedia article you have posted here. The detail and no doubt workmanship that went into this building over the years is incredible. It is suppose to be one of the regions most dramatic cathedrals according to a little book I have on Southern Italy. I can see why just from the description given here.

I must admit though that I have a few question marks re some of the icons used in this building – they seem more cultic than Christian to me. I am looking forward to sharing the article with my children to get their feedback. It should make an interesting discussion!

(There’s a few other things I question also like: How can a Christian institute justify putting so much wealth into its buildings, supposedly to the glory of God, when there are precious little children starving, dying, being exploited – but I guess I am way off topic now...!)

The building though, is amazing, and the history that goes with it.

Pics of Troia Cathedral

INCREDIBLE! I’ve never seen a church that looks like this. Some of the icons are ugly – actually most of them are. Definitely dramatic . Very Gothic. The church must have been extremely well built to survive all these hundreds of years through wars and earthquakes etc, although I guess restoration work has been done at various times along with extensions … But still?

Thanks for sharing these. Will share with my family. They'll be interested.
