Brugnera is probably the most likely place of birth of Lorenzo and his first two children Maria and Domenico. It's charming and follows the shape of the stream besides which it sits. The street life was sedate3 but active.se villages are often only separated by a few kilometres and often only by a signpost telling you you have left one and are entering another. The five or six villages i am visiting (Codogna and Cimetta to come on day two) are probably a days walk between the most distant two points at most. They are simple but I like them a lot. They are authentic. No tourists. Almost no English. and strong on local connections. Summer is definitely a good time to visit. everything is growing, its warm and people are out and about. It could be miserable in winter.
I haven't forgotten Catterina Cescon and Maria Lucon (bisnonno number 1 and 2 - Lorenzo married twice) . Cimetta tomorrow.
