Hello to the Carattini's all over the world,
I am Rolf, Swiss citizen living in Ticino, the Italian speaking part of Switzerland. A small branch of the family Carattini is living in this area. We are of italian origin (North Italy). I know that my grand-father (his name was Cesare) was born in Camerlata (near Como, in Italy, just near to the south border of Switzerland). I also know that he had a brother who moved (it must have been towards the end of the 19th Century) to Paris and then possibly moved further to America. In the meantime there seem to be very few Carattini left in Italy. At the moment I do not have further information, but I count to be able to retrace some in the near future.
If anyone can, on the ground of these informaton, give me more details, he/she is very welcome.
