My beautiful and full of character ancestors, on my Mum's side. Aunt Livia is so elegant and Uncle Antonio is so serious. I was told that when he used to go to the cinema, (still with no sound in those days), during the fights scenes dear Uncle Antonio used to say out loud "Toc!", a kind of spontaneous sound effect to punctuate and underline the exchange of blows. What is remembered and told about the past generations within one's family is often bizarre and beautifully funny!
