Death: Nov. 26, 1977

San Francisco County

Wife of Daniele Macchiarini.

Mother of
Nunziata "Nona" Macchiarini La Fleur (1903-1991),
Ernesta "Ernestine" Frances Macchiarini White (1905-1943),
Peter Macchiarini (1909-2001),
Flora Ellen Macchiarini Core (1911-1979),
Lydia Adele Macchiarini Benvenuto (1913-2009), and
P. Dora "Doris" Macchiarini Pisani (1914-2010).

Brigida and her husband, and their two eldest daughters, came to America, entering through New York City, on October 10, 1908. They settled in Sonoma county, in northern California, and raised their family there.

In the 1930s, the youngest family members traveled with their mother back to Toscana (Tuscany, Italy), while the eldest daughters moved to San Francisco.

In the late 1930s, daughter Ernestine Macchiarini White established the International Toastmistress Club, now known as POWERtalk International, before her untimely death due to cancer.

During and after WWI, the rest of the Macchiarini family returned to San Francisco, where they practiced the family profession: Fine Art.

Peter enjoyed great success as an artist and jeweler. The Macchiarini Steps in North Beach were named after Peter Macchiarini by the City and County of San Francisco, shortly before his death.

Lydia was an artist and painter of note, and her husband Elio Benvenuto was an artist and sculptor of great reknown in San Francisco.

Brigida Mancini Macchiarini was survived by five children and several grandchildren.
