In Pictures: Carpanzano (parte due/part 2)

A while back I posted some pictures of my father’s town in Calabria. You can check them out here. I’ve been feeling super nostalgic lately so here are some more pictures of one of my absolute favorite places in the world! 🙂

    Hi, My name es Carlos Carpanzano. My italian grandfather went to Buenos Aires, Argentina more than 100 years ago. I wish to know if the Carpanzano last name es related to the Village Carpanzano. I mean hundred of year ago they got this last name becouse they where from the village of Carpanzano? Thankyou.

    My wife and I want to visit Carpanzano, Italia. We will be in Calabria on Saturday, March 28, 2009. How can we get to Carpanzano, home of my grandfather, Luigi Aragona, who came to America in the early 1900’s? Thank you for writing!

    Thanks for the comment…I’ll do my best to help you out. Check your email 🙂

      No, I’m beginning to see that many of the little villages in Calabria are very similar…yet all very unique in their own way. One thing is for certain, they are all beautiful! 🙂
