Find Renato


Renato took this selfie at the vintage outdoor fair in Turin. Right now he is busy translating Professor Miccoli's latest book, Rudolph Valentino & The Professor, into English with my assistance and we are excited about the project. Renato's first book in Italian is also happening. Thank you all for the encouragement and insights. We won't be silenced and I hope certain people have an awakening of spirit soon.

  1. I admire Evelyn and Renato for their determination and endurance in not letting the rubbish flowing from self-proclaimed VSC ever stop them from pressing onward. Their work will always speak for itself.

  2. Looking forward to it (the Professor, being the palm reader?). Renato's selfie so reminds me of a quick moment in The Son of the Sheik, where Jasmin and her father leave their tent, and for an eerie moment a face appears in a mirror that's propped up against a floor in the tent. Have you ever noticed this? I'm dying to know who it is, as I assume it's a movie flub. The man looks like Joe Kennedy.

    1. Interesting. I never did notice that. "The Professor" is Professor Aurelio Miccoli, the author of The Infancy of the Myth. He is a renown Valentino scholar and researcher and native of Castellaneta and has contributed so much to Valentino's history as a result of his years spent in the local archives.

  3. What is "The Professor" a professor of? Degrees?

    1. Or course. It is an academic degree and one of great respect given to those who teach in Italy.
