Robert De Niro's great-grandparents, Giovanni Di Niro and Angelina Mercurio, immigrated to the United States from Ferrazzano in 1887.
Ferrazzano is a town and comune in the province of Campobasso, in the Italian region Molise. It is located 5 km (3 mi) south of Campobasso.
The town is a medieval village sited on a hilltop in the central part of Italy, in the mountains about halfway across the "knee" of the Italian peninsula. The village is composed of fieldstone row houses with clay tile roofs. Its small piazza is anchored by a simple fountain. The village also has a small castello (castle) with a stone turret, and a Catholic church of The Assumption. Anthony of Padua is the town's patron saint.
Ferrazzano is reached by train, with a station in Campobasso, or by car.
