I depart Sunday afternoon for Rome from Livorno. Tomorrow about 20 of us depart for the Holy Land for 9 days. Enjoy the pics of Livorno. I discovered yesterday that the old section of Livorno called Venetzia or Venince because of the canals, is the neighborhood where my mother grew up. The apartment building is gone bot there is an octagonal Church where Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton prayed while caring for her dying husband in Livorno and where she converted to the Catholic Faith. Some pics too of my first cousins and their wives.
