This is a photo of my grandparents visiting the family in the early to mid-1950s in Cardano al Campo, located in the province of Varese, in the region of Lombardia. This was their first time back since they emigrated to the U.S. in 1932. My grandfather Francesco Iametti (seated fourth in the photo) first emigrated to the U.S. in 1921, after serving in the Italian army during World War I. He sailed on the Dante Alighieri and entered the U.S. through Ellis Island. He traveled to California to live with his Aunt and worked in her hotel, later finding employment in the steel mills. My grandfather returned to Italy after a few years to marry my grandmother, Maria Ines Magnaghi (fourth standing in the photo). Their first child, Rosetta, was born in 1928, in Gallarate. The family traveled back to the U.S. in 1932, sailing on the Rex and settled in the Bronx, New York. My grandfather worked in the embroidery industry, a craft that he learned in Cardano al Campo. My grandparents had three more children, Frank, Alfio and Regina and 10 grandchildren.
