In November 2007, we stopped in Cremona, in Northern Italy on our way between Venice and Florence. This was in part to retrace the steps of Lionel and Cecily Dibdin in 1933 and in part to explore the birthplace of Agostino Aglio and find out what we could about his life. Sadly they never returned.
The offices of the cemetery were open and office staff busily helping people find graves and information about their relatives. The response to a request regarding Aglio was for someone to have faxed for me from the archive office, a page giving, in Italian, a short biography from a book ABECEDARIO BIOGRAFICO DEI PITTORI .....by Giuseppe Grasselli (Alphabetic Biography of Painters, Sculptors and Architects from Cremona 1827 by Giuseppe Grasselli)
This encouraged further research and much of the information about Agostino Aglio and his family has been found amongst readily available archives.
