Ferdinando Amidei (1870)

Ferdinando was born in Fiumalbo Amidei in the province of Modena July 27, 1870 to Lorenzo and Pellegrina Brugioni, both farmers. His adventure in the United States begins in November 1897, when he embarked from Le Havre to New York freshly married Maddalena Gherardi, who will join him in Walsenburg in April 1899.

Probably a relative of Domenico Amidei, recorded among the founders of the “Societ√† di Mutuo Soccorso Dante Alighieri”¬†in Rouse in 1902 and then settled in Missouri, Ferdinando makes several trips back and forth from Fiumalbo: 1905, 1911 and 1915 a few days before the outbreak of war.

He returned to Italy probably after the First World War and died in Fiumalbo in 1944.
