Speaking to my mum yesterday, she was sooo excited about us being in her hometown... she chatted and chatted and then asked if we could try to find the house where she was born!! She gave me some very rough directions over the phone and this morning as the temperature hit 38 degrees, Sandy and I set off in search of her house -- I wasn't coming home until we had accomplished our mission!!!.
We walked along some very narrow cobblestone streets, up bluestone stairs, stairs and more stairs and we finally found it... No. 43 Via Manzoni!!!
I pictured my mum playing there in the 30's and 40's and it was both beautiful and overwhelming at the same time!!!
