      "As I was always away, I did not know too well this aunts & uncles (Luigi, Teressina, Maria, Erminina, Addorata, Giacomo, Franco). I had a lot of cousins, except a few, are all dead now. We had pictures of my father and grandparents from Fondo & Malosco but as we were evacuated (WWI) from Rovereto, May 1915 & returned December 1918 we found the city half destroyed and we lost everthing. I have only a very small picture of my father. He died when he was 42 years only."

      "La famiglia di mia Madre era di Malosco. I de Rigos, Conti orunindi di Spagna, molto ricchi, avevano una villa dove adesso c'e l'Hotel Panorama.
      Col tempo impoverirono -- mia nonna Carlina Rigos sposo' Andrea Mor e la sua casa e guella dove c'e lo zio Valerio e Franco di Genova. "
