Caracciolo, Giovanni - Same Place Not The Same GESUAI.DO, Italy (UP!)...
Same Place Not The Same GESUAI.DO, Italy (UP!) -"I -"I want to breathe a little of my country's air," the old said. "Then I will die content having seen once more the house where I was born." But when the taxi from Naples came to a hall in the town of Gesualdo, Giovanni Caracciolo, 88, flew into a rage. "This is not my village," he said. "You have cheated me." Instead of the small house and his family left behind when they moved to the United States , in 1900,- Caracciolo found a large hotel. It took the town's chief of tourism to convince Caracciolo thai although much had changed since 1900, this indeed was GesuJado. But once convinced, he booked rooms for himself and his daughter Maria, one of his 12 children, to spend one month in the hotel that stood on his birthplace.
