Front & Center

A new book will soon be added to our library. We are very excited about it to say the least. Meanwhile, I share our books as well as those of Professor Aurelio Miccoli and Michael Morris, (see below) as a collage of covers... while working hard to see the new one front and center.

  1. This is a very impressive volume of work! Congratulations to Ms. Zumaya, Mr. Floris, and Prof. Miccoli for their never ending search for the truth. I am looking forward to the next book with great anticipation!

  3. Looking at these and knowing there is another on the way is truly impressive. Each builds upon the other and represents a living and growing reality in Valentino research and publication.
    Compare this to the now stagnant works of Leider, Bret, Hill, Terhune, etc. etc. who have not progressed beyond their original decade or even two decade old publications. "Studies" implies ongoing research and insight. Sadly, these authors published what they wanted to at the time to further an agenda and then they intellectually checked out.

    1. Thank you all for your supportive comments. And it is a "growing reality" with more works on their way.

    2. Good insight 4:33 p.m..
      I would just tweak that to say that at least in the cases of Bret and Terhune, there were never signs of intellect "checking in" begin with.

  5. I love the book covers. They are very well designed and are pleasing to the eye.

  6. These books stand as a testimony to the fine scholarship of Renato, Evelyn and their collaborators. As those who have interest in Valentino and his legacy, we have much to be grateful for with these fine resources.

    We all know this has come at some personal and professional costs to the Floris'. Evelyn is correct when she says that daily the VSC show their jealousy and mean spiritedness because of these wonderful works and more.

    How does a discussion like the one today on MATB of Clark Gable & Loretta Young's affair devolve into another swipe at Evelyn's work? How is it o.k. to accuse someone of writing about "bizarre and irresponsible things only to sell books"? Especially when the author you are being so catty about has always done her homework and cited sources.

    Miserable jealousy...pure and simple!

    1. Actually they are the ones writing bizarre and irresponsible things... everyday and not just about Valentino but about us too. They are the irresponsible, ignoring facts to drive their false narratives. I make a point of citing my sources always with over 40 pages of them in Affairs Valentino. Its defamation for them to say things like that... and I hope people there recognize it as such.

  7. OK, as I’ve said previously, I am certain that “Etienne,” is Lord Constable. I am also certain that Etienne is an avid consumer of this blog. So, Lord Constable, after your latest humiliating bomb in trying to pass off a fictional tale about Monte Carlo as the functional equivalent of Valentino’s experience there, how do you dare continue to show your face, let alone characterize Evelyn and Renato’s work in developing the theory that Jean was Valentino’s son as “bizarre and irresponsible?” You are outclassed by them in every way. And I say that as someone who does NOT believe that Jean was Valentino’s son.

    1. Alright, if Constable claims it is " bizarre and irresponsible " why does he not show evidence that it is not true,

    2. Renato disposed of Steve Constable is one neat little essay. Slice, dice, and destroy.

    1. That was reported on an Italian website. We included a screenshot of that in the Case Files section on the Love Child.

    2. Did she herself say that?

    3. As we reported, we contacted the blog and they said they can not reveal the identity of a poster. That is their policy. We left it at that. It was an odd thing to come across. Renato told them, if and when they can to contact us. They have our contact info. That screenshot was less important than Chicca Morone's endorsement as she knew Jean well. But I felt it was worth sharing.

    4. To date, there has been no refuting that Ms. Villalobos said that.

    5. I posted that screenshot on a blog post I made here on March 18, 2020, titled, The Love Child Theory".
