|White rock near the the hermitage of Santo Spirito, seen from Bloc-Haus. It is called "la Liscia Sulagnana' in dialect, "Flat Rock" in English.|
|Closer view of the white rock as seen across the ravine at Santo Spirito, with 'hoofprints". (See the story below) The ravine in front is called "La Fosse de canalone."|
|There is a legend regarding this flat white rock: Saint Peter, Saint Bartolomeo and Saint Giovanni were always being followed by the devil, and as they attempted to build churches the devil would tear them down. The devil followed San Giovanni across the white rock but was unable to cross and fell into the ravine. The legend says that San Giovanni's donkey left the hoofprints in the rock which are visible today, and that San Bartolomeo and Saint Peter remained on this side of the ravine and built the hermitages of San Bartolomeo and Santo Spirito, while San Giovanni built his hermitage on the other side, near Decontra.|

The family is from Lettomanoppello, and the photo was taken on May 2, 1970, the day of their departure from Naples to the United States aboard the Greek ship Queen Mary. They settled in the US, in Delaware. Lucia D'Alfonso photo|
