Venticano? previous name or history

Postby didozo » 23 Feb 2011, 16:25

Hello
Was Venticano, Benevento, Campania known by another name like (apoligize for my spelling) Camplione or something like that?

Perhaps you mean Venticano in the Avellino province (it borders Benevento):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venticano

It seems before 1948 it was part of the town of Pietradefusi, before it became it's own comune:

No town by the name of Camplione exists in Italy today, and I can find no evidence to say it ever did.
My Italian surnames:

Caserta: Maietta, Rossano, Tessitore, Negro, Peluso, Musone

Campobasso: D'Andrea, Barile

Catanzaro: Fiorelli/Fiorillo, Romito
