My name is Karen McDonald. I’m the great grand-daughter of Mansueto Chiaroni.
Mansueto left his hometown of Germasino, a small rural village on Lago Di Como in Italy, in the 1880s. He set off with his brother Ambrogio to join their uncle, also Ambrogio, in the South Island of New Zealand.
They were only in their early twenties when they set off on their adventure to build a life, home and family on the other side of the world.
This blog is about being brave, like Mansueto and Ambrogio. It’s about home, family and adventure.
