Dear Ralph:
    I have just recently found this rare book: The flight which crossed the Alps. (Il volo che valic̣ le Alpi).
    The book was written by Luigi Barzini, reporter and friend of Chavez. It was published by "SOC EDIT - LA GRANDE ATTVALITA - MILANO - MCMXI"
    There are two monuments of Chavez in Italy. One is at Vogogn,. the other is at Domodossola. Would you be interested in receiving photos of them. I will be there the next week.
Giovanni Giorgetti
Editor's Note: Yes, I would be very interested to receive photos of the monuments. I will be anxious to add them to complement his story.
