More Photos of Pasquetta 2007 in Sepiccciano

| | Comments (6)


The 17th century Palazzo Onoratelli was the home of my great–grandmother Emma Onoratelli Barbato. The stucco ornamentation in the baroque style — with smiling angels over the arches — was done by the same artisan who decorated the Palazzo Reale (La Reggia) in Caserta.

The setting is almost magical. The palazzo built in the early 1700s has been beautifully restored. The family stemma (coat of arms) is displayed above the main entrance; it bears the sword of Saint Michael and is held aloft by two naked angels.

I wondered where you were! I thought you might be ill and you're having a
good time with St. Camillus' descendants! You are so fortunate! I hope you
had a wonderful time. God bless!

Beautiful palazzo! You all must have had a wonderful conversation in such a lovely environment.

+Dear Father,
It did me much good to see these photos. Glad to see that you are happily celebrating the Paschal Octave, radiant with His joy!

Dear Friend,

It gave me pleasure to see these beautiful photos after hearing you share stories of your past visits to your family at Palazzo Onoratelli.

I too thought you were ill, but am so glad to see your smiling face and that you seem well.

There is a HUGE family resemblance, by the way!!

Glad to see you are doing well and made another visit to our ancestral home. You look good! Take care.
Don Carmine
