Overview[edit]

Language/s: Italian and Albanian.[citation needed] Several families from San Basile emigrated to Brazil, Argentina and the United States in the beginning of the last century (1900). In Brazil, some of these families established their new life in Rio de Janeiro and developed commercial activities and small industries. Some of these Brazilian descendents have maintained connections with San Basile.
