The Quilietti Family

The story of a Scots Italian family

GIULIANOTTI Nicodemo line

  • This branch of the Giulianotti family come from a village just to the south  of Borgotora called Valdena 
    The village of Valdena belongs to the municipality of Borgo Val di Taro, in the province of Parma, region Emilia-Romagna.  

The village of Valdena is 4.54 kilometers far from the same town of Borgo Val di Taro to whom it belongs.  The local Church is S. Maria Assunta and the village today has some 80 parishiners

It was here that NICODEMO VALENTINO GIULIANOTTI was born on 11th February 1848.  He married  ROSA TERESA ZANRE’ (1847-1896).   There is  much social interaction between these lines  and we find brothers and sisters as well as cousins  from both sets of family marrying.
