DUE GEMELLAGI D’AMORE
ON ARRIVAL- A NEW SET OF TWINS

       •      Calabria and West Virginia
       •      San Giovanni in Fiore and Monongah


Upon Heritage Calabria’s initiative a Committee to promote the Twinning of Calabria with West
Virginia and San Giovanni in Fiore with Monongah, Usa. will soon be formed. The Commitee will
be comprised of people who share this dream both in Calabria and in West Virginia.

One third of the population of West Virginia trace their roots to Calabria as far back as 3-4
generations. Therefore, it was no surprise that the proposal set before the directors of the
Association’s branch there, by Francois-Xavier Nicoletti, founder of Heritage Calabria, on his
recent visit to West Virginia, was accepted unanimously and with much enthusiasm.

West Virginia and Calabria will strive to maintain their union and long time friendship by
encouraging a close relationship, initiating the exchange of ideas at the socio-cultural level, and
working together on the development of industrial, economic and artistic ventures.

A meeting of the respective Twinning Committees to coordinate their plan of action is expected to
take place before the year end.


                                               *********


With regards to the twin city project between San Giovanni in Fiore and Monongah, Francois-
Xavier Nicoletti has engaged in the discussion Rev. Everett Briggs and Joe Eates both strong
believers in Heritage Calabria.

The Commitees will soon be formed in Fairmont and San Giovanni in Fiore respectively in order to
present a formal request to the Authorities concerned.
