Termini - June 2001

Submitted by Frank Petro

These pictures are from our latest trip to Termini. My second cousin Giuseppe took us all around town.
This first series is limited to scenes from the Piazza Duomo area, which includes the Cathedral of San Nicola di Bari, and the old Stato Civile building. Keep in mind that nearly all baptisms and marriages over the last 300 years took place in this Cathedral, and it was right next to the building where they had to register these events, as well as deaths (starting in 1820).
I hope these photos give you a better insight of the place our ancestor's spent some of their most important moments. It was certainly one of the highlights of my trip.
