MAYOR MILLER VISITS PETTORANELLO
Bernie and Ruth Miller's visit to Pettoranello in August 2010 was truly memorable and they developed an appreciation for this lovely small town they had not experienced before. From the moment they arrived at the train station on Monday, August 9, they felt warmly welcomed and embraced by the people of Pettoranello, from the Mayor, Luciano Perna and his wife to people they passed on the street. Their days were filled with interesting activities.
