My great grandparents and grandparents immigrated from Italy to Brazil. At that time Italy was a Kingdom. I keep my great grandma’s and my grandpa’s passports. They are very special to me.

You can see here how simple passports were at that time !

Meus bisavós e avós emigraram da Itália para o Brasil. Naquela época a Itália era um Reino. Os passaportes deles são muito especiais para mim. Aqui dá para ver como os passaportes eram simples.

Minha bisavó nasceu em 1843 e meu avô em 1880 ! O rei da Itália naquele tempo era Vittorio Emanuele III.

  1. I have a string of cultured pearls which my dad gave to my mum for her 21st birthday, she then passed them on to me on my 21st birthday. My grans engagement ring, which she left to me. I treasure them both.
