This is the true story of Bianchi family with tuscan origins, Italy. All begins in 1914 when Gildo Bianchi decided to leave his land because he was poor without economic prospective and the Great War was beginning. He arrived in US, landed at Ellis Island (New York) and continued for Illinois and Iowa. He got married with the italian Assunta Mori and lived with his family in Fort Dodge (Iowa). He had 4 children (one died young): Inez, Renardo and Adermo. In 1937, when Gildo died,  the relationships between the families slowly interrupted. For many years Italian and american Bianchi didn't have any corrispondence. When Luciano, an italian distant relative, wrote a special email to Mike Bianchi (Renardo's Son) who lives in Fort Dodge. After some months Suzanne Bianchi (Mike's Sister) answered positively and promised to come in Italy. On 14th July 2010 Suzanne and her 2 children came back to meet their distant relatives and their roots. After this first travel others followed in Usa and in Italy again. The story goes on........with a diary and a photo gallery with the most beautiful moments.
