Domenico Antonio Russo

d. February 22, 2018

Domenico Antonio Russo  October 16, 1931- February 22, 2018 Domenico Antonio Russo, 86 of Rome, Italy and St. Davids, Pennsylvania, died peacefully at his home surrounded by his family. Mr. Russo was born in 1931 in Cerami (Enna) Sicily, the first of two children to Luigia Ambruzzi and Giuseppe Russo. After World War ll his family moved to Rome. In Rome, Mr. Russo studied at the Salesian School and later earned his degree as a building engineer and land surveyor, a valuable degree for the reconstruction of the country after two world wars.  He started his career at Buitoni in Rome. An accomplished linguist, he spoke five languages fluently: Italian, English, Spanish, French and Swedish.  He transitioned to a career in tourism and became an Official Guide of the City of Rome and Vatican City.  Using his languages, humor, knowledge of art, architecture and history, and mastery of the city of Rome and the country of Italy, he delighted his clients and created memorable experiences for them and their families.  In addition to showcasing his country to foreigners, he also led groups of Italians overseas on trips to India, Hong Kong, Japan, Switzerland, Holland and France.  He was an informed and trusted guide who could solve any traveler’s problem and answer any inquiry. He is survived by his devoted wife of 46 years, Kristin O’Malley, his loving daughter Inez McGowan (Daniel) and grandchildren Kateri Inez McGowan and Daniel Aloysius McGowan.  A Mass celebrating his life will be held at St. Katharine of Siena in Wayne, Pa on March 3rd at 11 AM with a visitation starting at 10 AM.  In lieu of flowers, contributions in Domenico’s memory can be made to The Bryn Mawr Hospital Foundation, 130 South Bryn Mawr Avenue, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010.
