What is it about the Island of Ustica that makes one want to return over and
over again? Perhaps one of the things is the warm welcome one receives from
the people living on the island. Another is the feeling of connection with your
ancesters and perhaps that is the most compelling reason....
have found that even people who have no ancesters from Ustica fall in love with
the island and its residents.
Louisiana traveled to Italy and visited Rome, Venice, Florence and Ustica. Rome,Venice
and Florence were very interesting and beautiful but Ustica was the highlight
of the trip with so much warmth, beauty and welcoming arms.
