Her parents migrated to Australia from Abruzzo in the 1950s; however, the extended family, still in Abruzzo, welcomed her back over the years. A long rewarding career in physiotherapy in Australia led the way for Luciana to follow her next dream: to return to her ancestral home and create special itineraries in Abruzzo to share with like-minded travelers.
