Historical Dioràma Arbëresh (4 °) Historical-cultural-family gleanings of the Licursi of UruriLuigi Licursi or ... A family proudly "prisoner" of Kosovo Polje, Skanderbeg and Idris el Senussi.Luigi Licursi (1863-1936) - Luvëxhìni Serafìnit Lëkurëzìravet, brilliant agricultural entrepreneur "ante litteram" as, for that matter, his father-in-law Emilio De Rosa Lalakèlit (1). In 1898, the large farm "Libertucci" took over (in tandem with fellow citizen Paolo Grimani), remaining the sole owner a few years later. Taken also from the passion for trade (another dream of youth!), In the 1901 it approaches the world of the precious et similia. Here, then, the beginning of frequent trips to Naples and its surroundings. He will be one of the first Molise to take advantage of the subscription to the Railways of the Kingdom of Italy. A curious digression that, perhaps, will please environmentalists. Our Luigi, in one of his letters (dated Castellammare di Stabia - 21 July 1914) to the family, among other things, complains of deep disappointment for the slaughter of sheep by a pack of wolves. Ergo, in Lower Molise, at least until the dawn of the First World War, the "Signor Lupo" is still the master! Worthy of note, finally, will be the nuptials of the children of the versatile and unreachable Luigi: ● 1909 - Carolina, the firstborn , with Tiberio Musacchio (landowner, belonging to the offspring of Princess Vlaika Kastriota, one of the five sisters of the Kreshnìk Giorgio Skanderbeg); ● 1909 - Camilla, the second child, with Costantino Occhionero (landowner, it seems that one of his ancestors took part in the epic battle of Kosovo Polje = Dhèu Zògjevet of 28 June 1389); ● 1920 - Michele (2), the quintogenito, with Irma Alberti Teppa (daughter of a Turin engineer, owner of an important typography and great Fiat shareholder);
● 1926 - Antonietta, the fourth child, with Luigi Giammaria (textile entrepreneur from Castellammare Adriatico, today Pescara); ● 1928 - Nerina, the sixth child, with Liborio De Giorgio (one of the wealthiest landowners of Chieuti - Foggia); ● 1935 - Anna Rosaria, the eighth daughter, with Pompeo De Pompeis (engineer from Abruzzo, director of the mines of Scafa - Pescara). At the end. The wedding of Anna Rosaria, celebrated 31 October in Ururi, are the first ever to be immortalized, in the arbëresh town, by a camera!NOTES (1) - Emilio De Rosa Lalakèlit (1838-1879) - A farmer who is dynamic and attentive to all sorts of novelties, he is the very first citizen of Ururi to design and create agricultural-commercial contacts with some places in Campania. We also have a daguerreotype of Emilio taken at Santa Maria Capua Vetere in the 1862.(2) - Michele Licursi (1893-1949) - Young and handsome Bersaglieri Officer, he valiantly takes part in the First World War. In April 1917, in Libya, attends a dramatic Italian-Libyan summit aimed at solving territorial problems. The Libyan delegation is headed by a certain ...
