Karen, Tagliacozza is west of Ovindoli which is the village where my father was born. It is in the Province of L'Aquila (or Aquila) in the Abruzzo Region. I suspect that Brecciasecca must in the same area. On a map look in the area north and northwest of Avezzano. Also go to abruzzo2000.com, it gives quite a bit of information about the Abruzzo.
If you find a family connection to the Moretti of Ovindoli, please, let me know. My grandmother was Candida Moretti daughter of Nicola Moretti in Ovindoli. Her mother was Rosa Pietrobucci of Le Casale which was a village between Ovindoli and Tagliacozza.
Charles. Count of Anjou and King of Naples and Sicily, who was the brother of St Louis, King of France, fought a battle with Conradine (of Hohenstaufen) between Tagliacozza and Ovindoli. You shall find the place historically interesting.
