I traveled back to Molise to experience the  May 1st (Festa del Maja) in my great great grandpa’s hometown (Acquaviva Collecroce).  We stayed in nearby San Felice del Molise (my great grandma’s birthplace).  We followed the gigantic flower-covered puppet around the streets of Acquaviva singing, dancing, and eating for 3 hours before heading to the town’s gym for more food and dancing.  It was what every girl dreams of when she pictures visiting the small Italian village of her ancestors.
