On Sunday, May 21, 2023 our club gathered at Sapore Italiano in Burlingame. The amiable owner of the restaurant, Elio Durzo, treated us to an excellent meal with impeccable service.
We introduced two new members to the club, Stefano Abbasciano, an attorney, and Stefano Mazzalai, a marketing operations manager. Both are originally from the city of Trento. Stefano Abbasciano’s family operates a well-known cheese factory in Trento, Caseificio Abbasciano.
We welcomed David Pizzorno to the club at our Christmas event. This time we had the pleasure of meeting his wife Crystal and son Luca. David’s Trentino family, last names of Pilati and Torresani, is from Val di Non. David journeys often to Italy to visit family and ski.
Theresa Yob came to a club event many years ago but then lost contact with us. Her family is originally from Val di Non. She was not the only Yob at the event. Legacy members Ralph and Rosie Yob were accompanied by their son Tony, daughter Vicky and grandkids Brittany, Bradley and Zoe.
Several made the long trek from the Central Valley, including the Costa’s and Mussi’s, Michael Oliveri and legacy members Adriana Antoniolli and Nelly Mussi.
