Cheers to you, Renato Floris!!

Oh, the memories of the days long before lock down and masks and social distancing...Renato celebrated his birthday with some fine wine and a dinner (two years ago). I am incredibly biased in his praise...but he has worked so very hard and silently to contribute to the Rudolph Valentino legacy. 

Renato learned to speak French in his elementary school days and learned English from a persistent auntie... and now those skills have resulted in some fine books translated for all of you to read. 

Renato Floris first stepped into the Valentino world when he worked on the RAI television documentary on Valentino in the 1990's. It was then he met Father Michael Morris and for this we would meet in 2009 in Turin and begin our journey of true love and collaboration. 

Cheers to you Renato! All love!
