In May 2006, I got the chance to drive through the town that my grandfather was born in. Unfortunately, the visit was not a research trip. We drove through on a Sunday and everything was closed including the local cemetery. I hope to spend some time in Cossano Canavese one day. Here are a few pictures from that trip.

|The main street through town is very narrow.|
|The church is the tallest building in town.|

|These stones lined the road leading to the cemetery. All of the stones match the names listed on the plaque in town. I believe that this stone is a memorial for my great grandfather, Matteo Ciardonei.|
