||Hello, my name is Phil Falcone. My purpose in generating this webpage is to find those on the internet who have family or friends currently or formerly from either Roseto Valfortore, Italy or it's sister city, Roseto, Pennsylvania in the USA. I am Administrator of the newly created TWO ROSETOS Heritage Network on Facebook, a community dedicated to the folklore, traditions, ancestry, activities, and stories of these two towns.

|Roseto Valfortore - Background and Geography|
Roseto Valfortore (Valley of the Roses),|
is probably named for the fact that it is adjacent to the Fortore river.
It is surrounded by the other small towns of Biccari (NE), Troia (E),|
Orsara di Puglia (S), Foiano di Valfortore (W), and Baselice (NW).
It is about equidistant between Foggia and Benevento.
Roseto Valfortore is a very small mountaintop town of approximately 1,317 residents|
located 54 Km WSW of Foggia.
The town is approximately 49.61 square kilometers in area at an elevation of 658 m.
There are no major roads or sites in Roseto.

Foggia is the administrative province town of the Apulia (Puglia) region|
which is at the mid to lower section of Italy, closest to the Adriatic coast.

This website is dedicated to my late father, Lawrence Falcone. While stationed in Pisa during WWII, he visited his hometown of Roseto Valfortore often.
He would translate letters for the townspeople who had English-speaking relatives all over the world,
and at Christmas he would play Santa Claus and distribute presents to the children.
As a side note, I took the name "The Two Rosetos" from the book by Carla Bianco, Indiana University Press, Bloomington, which has very detailed information gathered from her personal experiences in both cities during the 1960s.

I believe now, more than ever, it is important|
for you to stop by and be with friends.
Why not come to catch up on what you've
missed and participate.
