Anna and Laura Tirocchi were born in Italy at the end of the nineteenth century. Guarcino, the small town from which they came, is located some miles east of Rome in the foothills of the mountains that form the central spine of the Italian peninsula. A small, rural village, it had no railway connection with the outside world until the 1930s, long after the Tirocchi sisters had left for America.
