I recently enjoyed a lovely visit to Fara San Martino and the Residence La Piazzetta. My sisters and I were there to see our mother's birthplace. We could not have had a more welcoming experience. The Rotunno family welcomed us and assisted us in making arrangements to get to Fara from Rome, in finding a place to eat, and in arranging a tour of the local pasta factory. The accomodations were roomy, bright, and clean. We were greeted with fresh fruit in our rooms on arrival. I particularly enjoyed the fresh figs and grapes. We were able to explore the town where our mother had lived as a child, visit the town hall where we found records for her and her father, attend mass with many of the lovely ladies of Fara, talk to several people who share our family name, and relax in the shadow of the beautiful, austere mountains. We found a church dated 1044 and the name of our grandmother's brother on a plaque showing those townspeople lost in World War I. I really felt at home in Fara, particularly at The Residence La Piazzetta, and would certainly be very happy to visit there again.
