Thank you for creating this web page.I am so excited about making contact with my roots! My family came from Istria and some of them live in Udine and others in Trieste. my father moved to England and we have now settled here. We have the surname Rinaldi. If anyone knew my family, I would love to get in contact with them. My granny was called Lina and she worked as a seamstress in the vilage milliners with her two sisters and her mother. Her husband (Rinaldi) was a notary republic and they also had a farm and grew grapes. i wish I had more details to share with you! We have recently been approached by the ministero delle eceonomia e delle finanze. We are apparently being offered some copensation for land lost. Does any know anything about this, or been offered anything similar. I am not sure if it is genuine or a scam.Any comments gratefully received.

Ho scoperto da poco il vostro sito e vi faccio le congratulazioni, in quanto è un sito ottimamente impostato ed estremamente curato, non da ultimo estremamente ricco di informazioni. Discendo dalla famiglia Stuparich di Lussingrande e da un po' di tempo cerco di ricostruire la storia della mia famiglia. Sono riuscito a risalire all'inizio del XIX secolo e sarei molto grato se qualcuno mi potesse dare informazioni per risalire al secolo precedente. Ho anche scoperto l'esistenza di Stuparich viventi in Ungheria nel corso del XVII secolo e cerco di conoscere quando e perchè sono giunti da quelle parti; qualcuno sa qualcosa al riguardo? Grazie e molti saluti.

Hello everybody!

My name is Giovanni Principe. My father, Mario, was born in Pola in the year 1930 and moved in 1947 with his family to Italy, in the village of Gandino, in the province of Bergamo, where I was born. It's 11 years that I live in USA and I love it. I never seen Istria but I learned a lot from my family, I even still speak the local dialect, enjoying it very much. If somebody of you knew my dad or his family don't hesitate to write me. I found this site and I can say that is very complete with a lot of information.

Oh, I almost forgot: one of my "almost" relatives, Alessandra Fusco, wrote a book titled "Tornera' l'Imperatore", where she tells the story of a girl from Pola, told inside the years immediately before and after the war. I read the book in Italy but I don't know if is available also in the States. Must read it.

For now, I want only to say hello to all of you, that even if are unknown to me, I consider a little bit my family.

Ciao.
Giovanni

Hello, I'm searching news about family Škorja (or Scoria) that has emigrated from Koper to Villa Ballester in Buenos Aires. The first to move was my great-grandfather Giovanni Skorja (or Ivan-Janez Škorja/Scoria) in 1929. He was born in Koper around 1895/1896 and he died in 1965. His wife Anna (or Ana) Riosa remained in Koper until she died in 1988. Their son Giovanni (also known as Giovanìn) follows him around 1935-1936. He was born in Koper in 1919 and he had a brother and a sister called Mirko (Federico) and Carmela. Giovanìn was married first with a woman from Sicilly and after she died, he get married with a spanish or argentinian woman. He had a son called Roberto (or Robert) born around 1953.

I would like to hear from anyone who might know about my family or be related to us. My father was Pietro Privileggio who was born in Pola on the 29th June 1924. His father was Luigi Privileggio who was born on the 9th April 1885 in Rovigno and was married to Eufemia Matucanzia in Rovigno. Luigi's father was Andrea Privileggio and mother was Eufemia Massarotto. Pietro and Luigi came out to Australia in November 1949. This is about all I know about my father's family, hoping somebody may be able to help.

thanks Rodney Peter Privileggio

Mi chiamo Nella GOVELLI, nata a Pola nel 1938, figlia di Lidia e Antonio. Come tante altre persone ho dovuto lasciare la mia terra natìa e imbarcatami con il Toscana, insieme ai miei, abbiamo raggiunto Bologna. (Campo profughi - Via Cirene, 2). Bologna in quanto mio padre, mutilato di guerra, avrebbe trovato curasso l'ospedale. Mia mamma è poliomelitica dall'età di 3 anni (ora ne ha 94). Avrei piacere di avere notizie di una famiglia e piùcisamente i signori ZAVATTIERO in quanto la signora era molto amica di mia mamma Lidia (che a quel tempo era incinta di mia sorella nata poi al S.Orsola di Bologna). Io giocavo e andavo a scuola con la figlia della signora ZAVATTIERO e ricordo che per andare a a scuola dovevamo attraversare 8 binari del treno. Dopo 3 anni di campo, ospitati in una specie di stalla di cavalli, abbiamo lasciato Bologna per andare dalla nonna a Trieste.

P.S.: Conoscevamo anche i signori SCALA. Se qualcuna ha notizie di questa famiglia ZAVATTIERO mi farebbe piacere avere un contatto. Ringrazio infinitamente e mando un saluto dall'Italia.

Istrians watching Croatian National Television today got a rare treat. And, while checking out their live streaming link (click here), I got to see it as well.

Back in 1970, one of the most popular summer songs on the radio (in many parts of the world) was "In The Summertime," written by Ray Dorset, lead singer of the band Mungo Jerry. And over 30 years later, the song still retains popularity ... and is even marketed as a popular "ringtone" for cellphones.

Ray and his band are now in Croatia and they performed "In The Summertime" for the audience at Studio 10 in Zagreb. The video is a little choppy in places ... but, if you have broadband, click here to see the 4-minute streaming video of Mungo Jerry's performance. Or, if you only have a modem, click here and wait for the short 4-meg file to download and start playing. (RealVideo required)

Just wanted to let all know that I, Mario Martini, was born in Pola, Istria, on Dec. 8, 1941. that is why my first name is now Mario, otherwise it would have been Fulvio. But Dec. 8 is the day of Mary, Immaculate Conception.

Anyway in early 1946 my parents,I and my sister, Silva, moved to Trieste. In 1948 we moved to Varese. In Dec 1951 we came to the US and moved to East Chicago, IN, a city close to Chicago.

To this day I live in the same area. Would love to communicate with any other Istriani.

Carrissimi amici, dear friends, dragi prijateli,

Rinnovo i miei auguri di buon anno 2005 a tutti voi e colgo l'occasione per segnalarvi un appuntamento interessante sulla Televisione Croata 2° canale. (HTV2)

Nel paese di Caldier vicino a Montona resiste una tradizionessoché scomparsa nel resto dell'Istria, ovvero quella dei "3 Re d'Oriente che videro la Stella..." (Kaldirski Kolejani) Quando ero piccolo e ancora recentemente mia nonna mi raccontava di questa bella tradizione che accompagna la festività dell'epifania.

http://www.istrianet.org/istria/customs/winter/epifania.htm

Alle ore 19.00 (fuso orario di Zagabria) viene trasmesso un documentario su questa tradizione. Sul 2 canale della Televisione Croata. (HTV2)

http://tv.phazer.info/?kanalID=2&datum=2005-01-06

Il documentario ripropone le immagini registrate durante la processione dello scorso anno nella parrocchia di Caldier, e i suoi villaggi: Prodani, Bertossi, Laze, Gali, Cvitki, Stefanici, Bertossici, Paladini. Penso che sia una buona opportunità per chi sia interessato.

Nuovamente buona epifania a tutti.

Dario
