Poggioreale in America
Our mission is to build bridges between the Sicilian village of Poggioreale and the thousands of descendants living in the United States. By recording our family stories and shared cultural traditions, we keep alive the connections between the current people of Poggioreale and those who now live elsewhere. We are dedicated to record and celebrate the contributions and accomplishments of both the current Poggiorealesi community and the Americans who continue to live with Poggioreale in their hearts. We are dedicated to pass on these histories to our young and future generations who have descended from the wonderful people of Poggioreale.
