back |Grandfather's Hill| next

 

 

This hillside is where my father, grandfather, grandmother , great-grandfather and great-great grandfather on the Napoli side, too, called home. That's Rende in the valley and my Grandpa Eugene Imbrogno's house at bottom left.

A wall of cane grows up on the lower part of the hillside, raised up, Roberto tells us, to grow trellises for garden plants and to craft sticks from the stiff cane stalks to whack the olive trees, bringing down a rain of olives when the time is ripe.
