On the second photo taken circa 1919 shown up to down is probably a wedding celebration in Victória City, capital of Espirito Santo State where we can see on first row the old Giulio sitted on the left side of the picture dressed with black clothes and beard. On the same row, toward him to right his wife Amélia, also dressed with black lacework clothes. The boy sitted on the ground in front of them wearing a hat is his younger son and my grandfather Alberto. The other people arround them are unknown guests invited for the party.
Giulio died at home in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on october 4, 1936 age of 73, from arteriosclerosis and heart attack. Pray for him.
Alberto De Grossi
