Author and lecturer, Mary Beth Moser, Ph.D., describes her journey of discovery as she searched for her cultural heritage in the extraordinary Italian region of Trentino-Alto Adige/Sud Tirol. Among the many topics that she discusses are the region’s unique history, the languages known as dialects, the traditional foods and wine, the stories of the family connections she made, the Trentino immigrants in America and how she has been able to continue her affiliation with other Trentini in the US.
