Campobasso is the safest city.

QUALITY OF LIFE: TRENTO TOP, REGGIO CALABRIA LAST

(AGI) - Rome, Jun 26 - Trento is the city with the highest quality of life in Italy, reveals a survey by Altroconsumo, an independent consumer association, carried out between October and November 2006 on the quality of life in 21 Italian cities. The survey showed that the cities with the highest quality of life after Trento were Bolzano, Aosta, Trieste, Bologna, and Perugia, according to the cities' own residents. The last places featured the southern cities: Naples, Palermo, Bari, and Reggio Calabria. 60 percent of interviewees in these latter cities wouldn't have any qualms about moving out. And who are the people who are most fond of their cities? The citizens of Genoa, Trieste, Venice, and Mestre. As for the evaluation parameters, the priority aspects, according to Italians, are security and the fight against crime. The city deemed to be the most dangerous is Naples, followed by Bari, Milan, Palermo, and Turin; the perception of security improves in less crowded cities. Campobasso is the safest city. Another important requisite is the availability of jobs. Unfortunately, southern cities don't excel in this; in fact, the least satisfied cities are Naples, Reggio Calabria, and Palermo. The opposite is true for Trento and Bolzano, which are the top two cities in Europe for job availability. What about public transport? Here, too, things aren't much better in the south. Almost all regional capitals do poorly due to the poor quality over price relationship. The last places go to Naples and Palermo, preceded by Florence and Rome.

While attending the funeral of my grandmother, who passed away at 96, I was told that my surname is DeRensis and NOT DeRenzo which has been the family name for as far back as I can recall. My father and grandfather are DeRenzo. Apparently, my grandfather's father, was named Michael De Rensis......from Campobasso......so , now I'm very curious to learn more.

Any suggestions on where to start......

My 6GGM was Olimpia de Rensis (born circa 1700; died 1764) of Campobasso. She was the daughter of Francesco de Rensis and Lucia Ciaramella. The surname was also spelled di Renzo, especially in the early church records. Occasionally, it was spelled de Renzo. If you can give me some more info about your family -- years of immigration, dates of birth, places of marriage , maiden names, whatever you have -- I will check that info against my database.

To keeep things humming John, LORENZI base surname also has an alteration in the base name appearing inthe Italian Surname Dictionary.The changes are:
Renzi and De Renzi or De Renzis, Rensi Renzo......Renzullo are listed. Any prefix DI or DE are principally of southern Italian origin. Since the introduction of Z in lieu of S into the name consists of one letter it may have relevance to you in view of the the de Renzo mentioned by you. =Peter=
