The Story of My name

It was in 1921 when my austrian great - grandfather Richard Pig decided to emigrate to the U.S. and changed his last name to Sanders. More than fifty years later Richard's grandson Christian went to Italy and met my mother, Francesca. When my parents couldn't agree on a name for me, they let my two older siblings decide. They thought of that one friend they used to play with on summer vacations and I was named after him, Matteo.
