The day after we went to Venice we went to Aviano, a tiny little town in the Dolomites near Pordenone. Aviano is where our relatives on dad's side lived before they emigrated to the USA, specifically his paternal grandfather, our great-grandfather.
A street sign dedicated to the Italian troops fallen in Nasiriya, Iraq.
The "frazione" of Aviano called Piante, with the street leading into it - Via Piante.
The church in Piante, right across the street from the house of some relatives. It had a very interesting round shape with two bell-towers.
The simple interior of the little church.
A war monument dedicated to the fallen citizens of Aviano during WWI.
These three pictures are of some of our distant relatives, all of who had the last name De Piante.
