it is great to read about the other piacentinis in the U.S. My grandfather was Giuseppe Piacentini, born in San Bonifacio, Italy. He came to the United States in the early 1920s and settled in Marlboro, Ny in the Hudson Valley where he worked for a mining company. His wife, Angela Pesavento Piacentini, followed him with three children in tow, Luigi, Anna and Alberto. They had four more children: Giuseppe (died at 12 yrs of age), Ida (died as an infant) and Ida and Mario (twins) My mother was Ida who died in 1998. My great grandfather was a delivery man in Italy who died in an accident. My grandfather had one sister who came to the US, Maria. I know he had a sister, Beata who remained in Italy, and other siblings I don't know anything about. Is there any chance that there is another Piacentini family from the same region. While in the U.S. the family name was Americanized by schools and such as Pagentine.
