My grandfather Saverio was born near Ascoli Piceno, near Tuscany.He married Desolina. He had a beauty salon in pittsburg in the 20's moved to hollywood in the 40's and did movie stars hair. His mothers name was maria giuseppe! Same as yours! My dads name was Salvatore. Maybe we are related after all. He looked sicilian to me, but my grandmother,swears that they were both northern italians! I do know that there is and was a lot of prejudice against the sicilians ( which my mother is Sacco). Anyhow, good luck on your searches.
