Lerose, just 33 and one of the “cousins” of De Blasio says, “I’ve always visited Grassano since I’ve been born. My father left for northern Italy (Torino) when he was 18 but came back regularly to visit his parents so when I was younger I used to spend one or two weeks there visit my grandparents.”
