The Roseto Mystery and BlogHer community
I am reading a book, Outliers, by my favorite author, Malcom Gladwell. I am not even close to completing the book but I was so inspired and I felt like I have something to offer to all of you. In the Introduction, the author took the readers to visit an incredible story about The Roseto Mystery, how they migrated from Roseto Valfortore located about one hundred miles southeast of Rome, Italy. to US. First they came in a group of eleven Rosetans –ten men and one boy—set sail for New York. After settling down, they sent message back home and the following year, came fifteen Rosetans. And as time passed, twelve years later in 1894, twelve hundred Rosetans applied for passports to America, abandoning their own town.
