  • Please see the text on Giuseppe's father Gioan Antonio for details of the Mill at Aino.

    It is likely that the children of Giuseppe Marchesi and Anna Maria Gaigher were born in this house, including Federico Marchesi who subsequently went to Australia with three of his brothers. Each of the 8 vivant siblings received 1/8 of the house when their father Giuseppe died in 1889, and subsequently, Giovanni Pietro Marchesi bought the entire property from his siblings. We have a copy of the "home made" contract relating to this, which can be seen on the "Old Documents" Page.

    We have also seen entries for many of our ancestors in the trading records at Palazzo Mengotti, the museum in Poschiavo. There was a busy grocery business here and an insight into daily life is evident when one sees that Giuseppe purchased items such as wine, rice and salt.
