Isabela Vice Governor Antonio “Tonypet” Albano now knows the origin of his last name – Albana Laziale in Italy!
The politiko visited the Italian commune on Thursday, June 13, saying it now has a “special place” in his heart.
He discovered Albano Laziale is home of the Lago Albano or Albano Lake, Castel Gandolfo, where Pope Benedict XVI currently lives, Albano Cathedral, Albano Museum, and restaurants and hotels named Albano as well!
“Someone said, we can never go forward, unless we look back. And someone also quipped, “a man who is always looking back, is looking if his wife is following him when he is doing a hanky lanky. LOL,” said Albano.
But in the end, Isabela will always be number one for him.
“I guess my hot blood and passion roots maybe Italian. BUT, my heart is still Ibanag and Filipino. Because here, they don’t have our famous Pansit Cabagan,” said Albano.
