__________________________________________

Bruno's 21 year old nephew, Giuseppe - son of Bruno's brother Francesco Maria Fuscą and Caterina Fabrizio - came over with Marianna and the boys.  He was the only other passenger from Vazzano and he could read and write. It's safe to assume that Bruno wanted an adult male relative to make the trip over with them for protection.
