Relatives on the march to the San Giuseppe Festa through the streets of Malfa...Or should that be street?Via Roma sort of snakes up through the town and part of the way it becomes Via Umberto. I did not know when this was taken, but just out of the picture to the right is where Catherine Marchetti Santospirito lives. The procession is for the San Giuseppe festa that ended at san Lorenzo at the top of the town.
The mountains above Malfa to the east. The foreground is Monte Rivi the other rises behind it in the clouds.
In 2009 Mary Burrill and I climbed this from the other side(to the right) and descended very dangerously ot the left near Santa Marina.
This is the Church of San Lorenzo in Malfa...most of our relatives were baptized here and the records are here. The other church has been closed for some time. The entire church was under restoration in 2009. The town is pretty much to the left and below the church.
