Poggioreale in America Group Tour
It was an early goal of Poggioreale in America founders and cousins, Ross Todaro and Tina Tondola Anderson, to some day travel together to Poggioreale with their families. During the planning process for the First Reunion of Poggioreale in America in June 2019, they met and developed a meaningful relationship with Poggioreale's Mayor Mimmo Cangelosi who they invited to attend as their keynote speaker. Both Ross and Tina knew a visit to both Poggioreale Antica and Poggioreale Nuovo was the next exciting step, and offering the experience to the membership of Poggioreale in America was a must! And so they created the first PIA Trip to Poggioreale in September 2019 with the expert help of Marjie Montalbano, a fellow Poggioreale descendent and travel agent. They excitedly led their group of 15 to Sicily where each agreed that they had just experienced the most emotional and exciting trip of their lives!
