Plasterer Gervasio Bernardi, born in Bagni di Lucca, came from Italy in 1911 to work as a plasterer. Stucco decorations were popular in interior design at this time.
Gervasio Bernardi married Domenica Franceschi December 9, 1912 in the Catholic church in Göteborg. 
They had four children in Göteborg and Gervasio may have had children in an earlier marriage in Italy, two of whom are in their household in the census 1940. At this time Gervasio had his own molding business.
There are still Bernardis living in the Göteborg area. They are presumably descendants of Gervasio, since he had several sons, and there are no other male Bernardis among the early immigrants. Someone may have immigrated later, of course.
