Joe’s other two daugters Audriana, 11, and Gabriella, 16, did not join them on the trip to see their dad; they are at home in New Jersey with mother Teresa.
He saw his daughters in November 2019 when they visited him in Italy following his 41-month prison sentence for mail, bankruptcy and wire fraud.

Both Joe and Teresa spent time in jail, serving back-to-back sentences so that one parent at a time could be home with the children.
After his prison stint, he was transferred straight to the Clinton County Correctional Center in Pennsylvania and into the hands of ICE in March 2019.
His deportation was court ordered back in October 2018 and his multiple appeal requests have so far fallen on deaf ears.
In October Joe was released from ICE custody and permitted to return to his native country before a final legal decision on his deportation there.

Joe was born in Saronno, Lombardy and has been in America since childhood but neglected to ever obtain U.S. citizenship, leaving him vulnerable to deportation after he and Teresa were convicted of various counts of fraud in 2014.
Teresa and her husband’s separation went public in mid-December a month after she brought their four daughters to visit him in Italy.
The girls also spent Christmas with Joe in Italy; they were supposed to visit him in April for Easter but it was canceled because of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Joe and Teresa finalized their divorce in September 2020 after 20 years of marriage; they had tied the knot in 1999.
In October, just before Milania and Gia’s visit, he spoke to E! News about the upcoming dad-daughter reunion.
He said: ‘I’m excited. It would be nice if all four came, but the little one’s got dance and Gabriella is very on top of her game, she doesn’t like to miss anything. Which is understandable.’
Adding that he ‘Facetimes with them all the time. It is what it is… We want to set something up for Christmas, we’re talking maybe meeting at an island. Hopefully everything opens up.’
Family is everything: He and Teresa have maintained an amicable relationship since their split and she took their four daughters to Italy before lockdown to visit their father
