Antonina Nefaria was the mother of Luchino Nefaria, and a member of the Nefaria family.
Antonina was born in Italy in 1898. She met Richard Cully in 1917 while he was fighting in WW1. She became pregnant in 1919, but unfortunately Richard had to return to America, leaving her in Italy. In 1920, she gave birth to a son, who she named Luchino. Struggling to raise Luchino on her own, she made amends with her sister Emiliana who was married into the Angelone family, a lesser family in the Maggia.
