Chapter Summary

Guido Sonino, a contemporary of Giulia Allatini, was born 10 April 1871 to Girolamo Sonino and Alaide Levi. As he highlighted in his application for "discrimination," submitted in December 1938, this business proved crucial to the British Navy during the Great War and soon after. After the war Sonino extended his business activities by joining the IRIS Company in Marzabotto, of which he was president until the promulgation of the racial laws. Among many photographs of documents that Sonino attached to his application, which are preserved in Tacchi Venturi's archive, there is a picture of him as the founder of the House of Fascio of Bologna, to which he contributed 5,000 Liras. Cardinal Maglione of the Vatican Secretariat of State forwarded his application, together with those of the Jews Umberto Cava, Walter Cardoso, and Leonfrancesco Orvieto, to Tacchi Venturi.
