Note: 1920 Nov 5 EI arrival, 29y, On the Lepolidina, listed as "Domenico Josella", wife in SPA - Carlini, going to Pittsburgh, PA to cousin - Giuseppe Boutestelide at 1233 Penn Ave, Born in Bazioli. Intends to stay in the USA for 5 years. Never before in the US. I have searched for the Butestelide name and similar names but I cannot find any names even close to that. I have searched for town name of Basioli and I cannot find any town names like that or even close to that.

May 2017 conversation with Carlo Iasella. Update - Luigi was definetly born in SPA. On his 1920 arrival in the US, he went to the cousin Giuseppe Contestabile. That family was probably from Castel del Giudice, his mother's hometown. In the US, the family lived in the Bloomfield section of Pittsburgh. Carlo met his wife, Maria who survived 8 of her children.

from : http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/news/s_558850.html : "The bottle labels for Carlo's Garage Winery explain how it became Pittsburgh's first winery. When prohibition became law, Domenico Iasella, newly arrived from Abruzzi, Italy, was not to be denied his wine and began making his own in the basement of his Penn Avenue auto repair shop in the Strip District. His son, Carlo, inherited the shop and his father's taste for wine. Almost 75 years later, the garage is The Enrico Biscotti Co. "The wine-making continued and got so good we just had to share," says the label."
