I was wondering if you would be able to answer this question for me.
I found this online...
Founded in 1752 by Giuseppe Emanuele Ventimiglia, the town "BELMONTE MEZZAGNO" was burned down in 1848 by the Bourbons in order to punish the inhabitants for their part in the revolutionary uprisings.
I was wondering if the town and the people all its people were wiped out.
If not did the people leave and come back?
Were they taken by surprise?
Did they leave, never came back and new people came and settled?
Also I noticed it was founded in 1752 and therefore semi fairly new. So the people from Belmonte Mezzagno..were did they come from before that?
