To the Attention of Ms. Sylvia Huber, Ms. Eleanor Gribbin and Ms. Donna Hill

In my opinion it behooves anyone, such as yourselves, claiming to be experts on Valentino to read/study Professor Aurelio Miccoli's work and ours too for that matter. Instead of banning these books...might I suggest you read them.

For the record, from Professor Aurelio Miccoli, the obituary notice of Rudolph Valentino's sister, Maria Guglielmi Strada. She died on July 25, 1969. Ms. Huber was off by some 19 years and Ms. Hill's guess-timate was off by 7 or 8 years. Thank-you Professor Miccoli for sharing your source!  (see below the notice as posted by daughter Gabriella and the full page of La Stampa from July 27, 1969 from which it is excerpted)

  1. It is unpardonable that these individuals are not in command of this most fundamental information about Maria. It denies her the basic dignity she deserves.

  2. Sort of makes you wonder if all the other information they try to pass off on those Facebook forums is really the truth.

  3. Wow? They really didn't know that? It's information they could have found on any numerous genealogy websites. It does beg the question of where do they get their data and how much of what they state is solid?

  4. A truthful but sad exposure to the above mentioned in relation to facts about either family members or scholarly knowledge - Sad because it highlights how little interest is shown in knowing ones family history after so many decades and truthful as in highlighting that the 'experts' never bothered to research or read any truthful documentations in written form about the subject they so idolise and worship. I think nothing more needs to be said on that.
