Chapter Summary

Dr Alberto Forti was born in 1875. Since 1905 Dr Forti had directed, without compensation, the Principal Asylum of Piedmont and the Municipal Assistance Centre for Early Childhood. Dr Forti's sober and concise application letter was originally accompanied by six attachments, which are not extant in the archive of Tacchi Venturi, to whom Cardinal Maglione of the Vatican Secretariat of State recommended his case. There is no other information regarding Forti's case. The Yad Vashem Central Database of Shoah Victims' Names lists three women by the name Forti who were born in Lugo and perished in the Shoah: Ana, Cesira, and Lina. They were likely related to Alberto's family.
