I recall my dominant thought that day being one of amazement that Rudolph Valentino could come from such a far off corner of the world to find his incredible success in Hollywood. Even in 2014 it was an arduous trek and somewhat off the path as the saying goes.
On this 125th celebration of the birth of Rudolph Valentino, I share a few pictures of us in front of Valentino’s birthplace and I credit all the photos to Aurelio Miccoli.
I add here that we have been recording my reading Affairs Valentino and have currently uploaded three installments. Find that designated podcast @ https://soundcloud.com/user-215352639
