Piedimonte di Cassino

Postby mkronenw » 29 Oct 2013, 12:13

Does anyone know when the town of Piedimonte di Cassino last existed? Was it absorbed by the growing city of Cassino, or abandoned or bombed?

It could be but his birth certificate said Piedimonti di Cassino. There are several Piedimontes in the area. Do you know what Piedimonti means? A small town near a large town? Small town near the base of a mountain?
