I just found your posting from 1998 -
My mother and I are planning a trip to the Val di Non, as that is where my father's family is from. His mother's name was Flora Marchetti Gruber. Flora's mother was Maria, who was born in Castelfondo in 1862 to Louis Marchetti and Catherine Lucchini-Rigatti. Perhaps Louis and Lorenzo were related - brothers or cousins? Let me know if you know anything of this. I have a few bits of info about the Marchettis, from the research my dad did years ago during two trips to Italy. The Marchettis migrated from France via Passo Palade to Castelfondo, probably during the reign of Charlemagne. THe family lived in an ancestral home, dating back to about 1524 - the second oldest in the community. THe back wall of the Marchetti house consists of part of a fortification over 1000 years old.
