Transcript of Testaccio, Roma - Nonno

Testaccio, ROme My Nonno -- Dominic Sergio Santini was born in 1927 and raised in Testaccio, Rome. Testaccio is a bit off the beaten tourist track, but contains many restaurants and attractions. Two years ago I went on vacation with my family all around Italy and spent one week in Rome. I was able to visit my nonno's eldest friend, where he use to purchase his milk and the streets in which he grew up. The life of a Roman The Colosseum or Roman Coliseum, which was originally called the Flavian Amphitheatre is a place my nonno hung around throughout his earlier life. The Colosseum is not far from many attractions including the Roman Forum as well as the Trevi Fountain. My Nonno spent most of his days around this area enjoying the sun and the gorgeous surroundings. This would be where my nonno grew up
and lived until 1951 where him and my
nonna (grandmother) then moved to Windsor.
My Zia Louisa which is my nonno's sister in
law now lives in this apartment. As I said before while I was visiting Italy
I was able to see where my nonno use to
buy his bottled milk not only was it just a small
store on the corner of the street but it was also right
near his apartment. There was also a little grocery store
down the street that I was also fortunate enough to visit
which sold everything from cookies and household
necessities to BEER.. and other alcoholic beverages.
My nonna and nonno now live in south Windsor on Mark street and have lived there for about 55 years. This would be the church in which my nonno use
to attend his masses in. It still stands to this
day and I was fortunate enough to be able to see it.
We were not allowed in it and it happened
to be a gated church.
