Patrizia Garrido Bosco's great grandfather is Juan Garrido, the wartime WW2 resistance mayor of Cabatuan, Iloilo under fellow Cabatuananon, Tomas Confesor, the Governor of Panay & Romblon. By virtue of his being the Cabatuan Mayor, Juan Garrido and his family were captured by the Japanese on December 28, 1943 in Barrio Pamuringao, Cabatuan, and massacred on January 4, 1944 in Barrio Nanga, Guimbal, Iloilo. Barrio Pamuringao was later renamed Barrio Pamuringao-Garrido in his honor.

Juan's other children, Manuel, Ernesto and Cesar, survived the incident by hiding in the bushes. Ernesto Garrido, and Cecilia Garrido of Pilar Camotes (Cebu), are Patrizia's grandparents.

Patrizia's parents are Chona Garrido, the daughter of Ernesto & Cecilia; and the late Gaudenzio Bosco of Milan, Italy. She was only 3 years old when her dad Gaudenzio passed away from cancer. She grew up under the loving care of her stepdad, Stefano Rijoff, who was the mayor of Muggio, near Milan, during that period.

Patrizia can speak the local dialect of Cabatuan and Alimodian, which is Ilonggo/Kinaray-a.
