Dream of Italy Season 2: Castelvetere sul Calore Ancestry Episode

(Full Episode Above - If Play Button Doesn't Work: Click Here)

Ten percent of Americans have some Italian blood and many of them could qualify for Italian citizenship by birth. Host Kathy McCabe travels to the ancestral village of her maternal great-grandfather – Castelvetere sul Calore in the region of Campania – to trace her roots and see if she can qualify for citizenship by bloodline. This has always been a place of mystery and miracles for her family. Kathy takes part in an ancient procession honoring the town’s patron saint Madonna delle Grazie. Her visit is full of surprises and the kind of magic that can only take place in Southern Italy.
