Name Caterina
Origin: Sardinia, Italy
Current Home: Habjanovci, Croatia
Story told by:: Udruga Breza

Caterina had emigrated from Sardinia to France as a child. There she grew up and met Slavko from Croatia, for whom she married. She moved courageously to a strangely unknown country of Croatia where she raised his family.  In the village of Habjanovci, not far from Osijek, she  learned the language and perhaps the most significant, revived the customs of that region. She learned traditional weaving and today she is transferring her knowledge to younger generation, preserving the cultural heritage of the country she moved to.
