Italian Representaive in Warsaw mid to late 1930's

Recommended Posts

This photograph of an unidentified Italian who seems to have been some sort of liason officer or military attache in Warsaw in the late 1930s. There is also a photo of a lady who may be his wife. Can anyone help to identify either of these people please.

Many thanks.

Hi, the name of the man coud be LUCIANO VELLARDO or VELTARDO... but I still don´t know who he is.

Why are you saying he could have been some sort of liason officer or military attache in Warsaw in the late 1930s ?

I´ll keep on searching

HI Ostuf,

Many thanks. I'm sure the frirst name is Liciano but the second name is more difficult. I think he may have been one of the staff at the Italian Embassy in Warsaw because most of the photos in this collection were inscribed to the Italian Military Attache in Warsaw Mario Marazzaniwho served in that capacity from 1933 to 1937.

Regards

Ian

Hi Ian, the name of the woman is Cecilia (that´s her signature). The name of the man is Luciano. If you analyze his surname, you can read VELLARDO, VELTARDO or VELTARSO. I can´t find any reference on any of these names, unluckily. The picture was taken in Klagenfurt (Austria) if I´m correct...By now is all I can say about it

Regards

Daniel

Hello,

in my opinion, the signature of the gentleman should be "Luciano Dellorto".

Hi Elmar

OK thanks very much. You could be right. You're the second person to put that up as a possibility.

Best wishes

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that

    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian
