From Yvonne Ramelli Vosti, United States
Ours is a long and never-ending migration from Moghegno, in Valle Maggia, to California and back. My great grandparents and many other relatives (on both sides) were in the early wave of Ticinese who went to California.
There they had children who returned to Moghegno, who in turn, grew up and had children of their own, my parents, who in turn again, migrated back to the same place in California. My siblings and I, born in California have always returned often to spend time in Valle Maggia, but one of my sisters did the reverse migration, (here we go again), moved back to Ticino as a teenager and still lives there now. I live in the Napa Valley with my husband, also a Californian descendant of Swiss Italians, from Gerra Piano, Valle Versasca, and our three daughters, who entertain the thought of moving back to Valle Maggia permanently. Will it ever end???
