D’Andrea-Pitassi Family Wedding in Pittsburgh

On May 14, 2022, several family members of AMHS President Emeritus Lucio D’Andrea and his wife Edvige traveled to Pittsburgh, Pa., for the wedding of Andrew DeSalle and Lauren Laskos.  Andrew is the son of Rosanna DeSalle, a cousin to AMHS Immediate Past President Maria D’Andrea-Yothers. The wedding reception was attended by over 200 guests, many of whom are related to Edvige (Pitassi) D’Andrea, who is the sole surviving matriarch of the Pitassi family. It was a most festive event — a cause for joy and celebration after two-plus years of the pandemic.
